Artspace Warehouse (Los Angeles)
Bernhard Zimmer has created a positive stir at major international art fairs (Art Basel, Kunst Köln, etc.). His lively and mysterious compositions pique the taste of the serious art collector. His abstract paintings transmit the richness of multiple layers of oil paint applied with precision to create an overall composition that holds opposites - order and chaos, abstraction and representation, boldness and subtlety - in exquisite tension.
At first glance, the striking blue artwork appears abstract, similar to a meditative object. The viewer is lured into the painting by the finely textured surfaces, flooded by the colors and their subtle relationships, and ends up discovering that the picture is full of life. Fragments of lettering appear below the surface adding a further dimension to the contemporary composition.

Bernhard Zimmer was born 1957 in Stuttgart, Germany in 1957 and attended at the Study of Cultural Studies in Hildesheim, Germany from 1978-1984. He lives and works in Cologne and has exhibited worldwide.
Working with oil and mixed media on canvas, he paints fields of soft shapes, blocks of color, and delicate lines; grids of sketchily rendered faces; and blocks of text or word fragments partially submerged, like hieroglyphics, in rich washes of color. Like reliefs, his compositions are built up from numerous layers of paint, marks, and images. Their surfaces shift with the light and the changing position of the viewer. Full of strength and fragility, Zimmer’s works reward patient viewing, revealing their rich visual nuances to those who take time to look into their layers.
The depth of the artworks is striking; it creates a kind of ontology of life in the open space to make itself felt. In some works, hundreds of small squares stick together in a narrow spectrum of colors and vibrate in their color nuances.
