"Mountain Landscapes: New Wilderness and Intensive Painting"

Bernd Zimmer

"Mountain Landscapes: New Wilderness and Intensive Painting"

(Born 1948 in Planegg near Munich) "Mountain" - Landscape 1982 is a neo-expressionist work that emerged from a significant, personal, and artistic phase of upheaval. Together with Rainer Fetting, Helmut Middendorf, Salomé, and others, Zimmer founded the artist self-help gallery Galerie am Moritzplatz in Berlin in 1977, which existed until 1981. In 1980, works of these so-called "Jungen" (or also Neue Wilde) were first presented to a broader public in the Berliner Haus am Waldsee under the title "Heftige Malerei" (Intense Painting). After Zimmer had already painted his first "Mountain" landscapes in 1978, he embarked on a work stay in Zwiezelstein (Ötztal/Tirol) in the summer months of 1980, where new groups of works emerged, consisting of powerful "Mountain" images, "Waterfalls," and depictions of oversized enlarged stones. In 1981, Zimmer was represented in the legendary exhibition "Rundschau Deutschland," and in 1982, he had his first solo exhibition in Groningen and received the scholarship of Villa Massimo in Rome, where he lived and worked for almost two years. In 1984, Zimmer closed his Berlin studio, moved to Polling/Oberbayern, and took over the former monastery estate. Gouache and mixed media on paper, laid down on canvas. Signed and dated (19)82. 70 cm x 100 cm. Framed.
