Opening Christopher Lehmpfuhl For his next exhibition, "Berliner Freiluft", artist Christopher Lehmpfuhl was drawn to the Beelitz-Heilstätten - a former sanatorium for the treatment of lung diseases just outside Berlin. His new oil and watercolour paintings will be exhibited there for the first time before then moving to Galerie Kornfeld in Berlin-Charlottenburg.
The choice of subject harks back in a double sense, not only to the former use and history of the place, but also a reference to the past manifests itself in the artistic process of the plein air painter. In the sensuality and physical experience of the impasto colour reliefs, which Christopher Lehmpfuhl creates with his own hands, the close relationship to the concepts of early Modernism, Romanticism and Impressionism becomes clear. Thus, Lehmpfuhl's paintings represent a reaction to the restrictions of life's realities in pandemic times, and show themselves again and again to be both contemporary and timeless. The process of painting thereby becomes a performative act that fulfils the growing desire for physical experience, for the aesthetic adventure outside the digital sphere.
His fascination with the elements of the environment shaped by humankind, with the uniqueness of the way light falls and weather conditions make Christopher Lehmpfuhl not just the cartographer of his own biography, but also a chronicler of our world in the 21st century. His interest in the transience of the moment connects the images of his hometown with the works of the Beelitz-Heilstätten, both documenting a status-quo that is disappearing due to the continuous transformation of urbanscapes and streets.
Christopher Lehmpfuhl, a master student of Klaus Fußmann at the Berlin University of Arts, has received numerous awards, including a scholarship from the Bavarian Academy of Fine Arts, and the GASAG Art Prize Berlin. His works are displayed at exhibitions in institutions, museums and galleries, both in Germany and abroad. After being honoured with a solo exhibition by the Museum Würth in Künzelsau in 2020/21, the Museo Würth La Rioja in Spain and the Museum for Art and Cultural History Schloss Gottorf, Landesmuseum Schleswig-Holstein are currently showing comprehensive solo exhibitions of the artist's work.
