Galerie Hengesbach presents Michael Reisch 'New Landscapes', places between reality and fiction

Michael Reisch’s landscapes are void of people, nothing happens within them. They are governed by great silence – and yet one is drawn in by the liveliness of the colours and shapes.

The pictures comprise vast details, which complete and connect with each other, creating their own world. The Hengesbach Gallery now presents these worlds in the ‘New Landscapes’ exhibition, until 3 July.

Michael Reisch creates landscapes that are both real and fictional. He photographically captures surroundings and edits them digitally so that they better meet our concepts and expectations of natural spaces, more so than the actual reality of nature.

The artist was born in 1964, Aachen. His works have already been exhibited worldwide: including shows in Berlin, Riga, Edinburgh and Amsterdam. He lives and works in Düsseldorf.

A book of the same title published by Hatje Cantz Verlag accompanies the exhibition.
