Until June 30, 2011, Moeller Fine Art
Moeller Fine Art is pleased to announce the first exhibition in Berlin devoted to the work of Mark Tobey (1890–1976). This show covers the years 1945-1970 and provides an overarching impression of one of the pioneers of Abstract Expressionism. The fifteen works on view illustrate the artist’s mastery of various techniques as well as the rich nuances of his visual language. The exhibition will open for Gallery Weekend Berlin on April 29 from 4 to 9pm and continue until July 30.
Beginning in the 1940s, Mark Tobey’s work was characterized by a fine web of white or bright lines on a dark background, forming a vibrating “all over” structure. These works, which at first seem entirely abstract, gradually reveal their close link to nature. “I like best to see in nature what I want in my painting. When we can find the abstract in nature we find the deepest art.”http://www.moellerfineart.com/exhibitions/2011-04-29_mark-tobey/
