news | The Slow Fire - fantasies woven from flies, feathers and nylon. Fine Art Storytelling by Claire Morgan in her solo exhibition at Karsten Greve Galerie, Cologne

Claire Morgan (1980*) makes her fantastical installations from translucent and weightless materials such as dandelion seeds, fruit flies or shredded plastic sheeting that are then strung onto fine nylon thread. Her extremely fragmented, sometimes large-scale works are preoccupied with the transience of life and the basic knowledge of the artist working ‘against time’, her futile effort to halt the onset of decay that simultaneously arises with the artistic process of creation. To thi …

Using colour to create moods and specific painterly components are characteristic to Jessica Backhaus’ (*1970) work. The fleeting arrangements and lovingly composed colours of her fragile still life photography seem to reflect her feelings and inner states. But they do not only have a high recognition value because of their colourfulness.

news | GoSee Quest : Dr. Werner Peters, Owner of the legendary Hotel Chelsea, Cologne and guest of honour at 1hour Restaurant at Hotel Marsil, on art, commerce and his kind communist

Cologne locals aren’t really famed for outstanding political involvement. Things are more comfortable on the River Rhine. Life always goes on somehow, and the less one has to with them, the better. Hip Berlin is far, far away and the long distance glamour of Hamburg is difficult for most to imagine. Weird introduction for someone like Dr. Werner Peters? Not really as he’s proof that there are of course exceptions in this city….sorry, interview not available in English! …

news | Good morning Baltimore - good morning GoSee! Maya Hayuk - an artist between obsession and passionate collecting – her exhibition and colourful wall designs get us in the mood for the upcoming City Leaks Festival in Cologne

New York based artist Maya Hayuk produced an exhibition and very colourful murals on car park walls that get us in the mood for the ‘Urban Art Festival CityLeaks’ in September 2013, which takes place in Cologne, Germany. GoSee met the quirky artist – at the Marsil Hotel of course. Maya Hayuk was born in 1969 in Baltimore and lives in Brooklyn, New York. Baltimore?
