International Artist Thomas Neukirch exhibits again in Mojácar
A striking art exhibition by Thomas Neukirch, was recently inaugurated at Mojácar’s La Fuente Art Centre.
Thomas, who was born in Germany, spent time living and working as an artist in Mojácar, which was his first residence in Andalucía and, although he currently resides in Cariatriz he has maintained his artistic ties with Mojácar.
He originally studied Fine Arts at the Academie des Beaux Arts in Lyon and went on to teach at the Jean Bertholle Academy of Fine Arts in Paris, where he lived until 1996. From 1990 he exhibited on a regular basis in galleries across France, Spain, Germany and Argentina. A number of his works are on permanent show at the “Galerie Andreas Henn” in Stuttgart and in the “Galerie Peinture Fraîche” in Paris, as well as in public collections in Baden Württemberg, Germany and in Andalucía.
His latest exhibition includes seven large oil paintings, some of which have already been on show in Paris and Germany, which express mans’ anxiety and restlessness. As a contrast, there is also an outstanding collection of smaller works done in Chinese ink displayed originally on bamboo canes, which depict scenes of everyday life, busy or at leisure in moments of peace and quiet.
Mojácar Councillor, Ana García, was at the opening of the show to hear directly from the artist about the processes of his work, although it is far from the first time he has exhibited in Mojácar, with a large number of admirers always keen to view the latest creations he has brought to the town.
Thomas’s show, which is free of charge, can be seen from Tuesdays to Sundays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. until December 15.
