When talking to a literary friend about Nietzsche’s Zarathustra, of course, the well-known dialogue between Zarathustra and the dwarf came up, which deals with time, space and the moment.
“Everything just lies,” muttered the dwarf contemptuously. All truth is crooked, time itself is a circle. ”
The circle is often referred to as the mother of all forms, the perfect form, i.e. the platonic solid, the basic structure that has arisen directly from nature. Nevertheless, most of the pictures in contemporary art are painted on rectangular formats, as this form represents a more concrete boundary of the picture, a more closed surface. The circle has no corners, an infinite number of sides and no interior angles. A circular shape as a painting surface represents a new challenge for many artists.

In the exhibition “Enter the circle”, a selection of artists who work graphically abstract and belong to the direction of graffuturism, take on exactly this challenge.
Works by CHAZME, ETNIK, Jana & Js, Jan Kalab, Marc C. Woehr, Patrick Hartl, Pavel Ryzko, RAWS, Sebastien Preschoux and Theo Lopez can be seen.
Some of these artists use the shape of the circle as a delimitation for their works on a regular basis, some occasionally, some for the first time.
In their work they reflect a wide variety of ideas and concepts. The artists find inspiration for their works in dealing with colors and shapes, in nature, in architecture and urban landscapes, in typography and graffiti. This creates visual languages ​​that could hardly be more different. Some works gush with liveliness and spontaneity, some are clearly constructed and incredibly precise. The artists work with paint, acrylic, paper, wood and other materials.

Opening reception is on December 3rd. And the show can be seen until February 4th, 2022 in our gallery in Düsseldorf.
