LARGE-UMSTADT – In the columned hall, an exhibition will be presented until December 4th under the theme “Weightful lightness”. Works by Elena Primavera, painting, and Lothar Steckenreiter are on display.

According to the statement, Elena Primavera tried her hand: in the painting and carpentry trades, in the office and in the commercial area. She studied art history, Romance studies and philosophy at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt. Art, music and family are the focal points of her life. Among other things, she has traveled and performed through Germany with “li ffigliole” and “Arro Barro” (traditional Italian music). Since 2008 she has been teaching oil painting at the adult education center in Bad Homburg and is represented in various exhibitions. In the exhibition “Weightful Lightness” her works stop time and overcome transience. A soap bubble lasts just as long as it takes to capture its existence with a camera. The implementation in oil painting, on the other hand, is a long process and the materials used are rather cumbersome. Opposites dissolve.

After an apprenticeship as a locksmith, training as a goldsmith and jewelery designer at the drawing academy in Hanau, Lothar Steckenreiter has been a freelance goldsmith and sculptor since 1985. From 1997 to 2003 he studied painting and sculpture at the Städel evening school in Frankfurt am Main. Since 1982 he has taken part in various exhibitions with sculptures, installations, paintings and jewellery.

In this exhibition he presents neo-constructivist works made of wood: sculptures made in one piece and rod connections; always looking for the inner language to express it. “Giving the self an outer form in the second and third dimensions.”

The works can be seen in the Columned Hall until Sunday 4 December. Admission free. The opening hours are on Friday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
