Wir freuen uns Sie zur Eröffnung der Ausstellung Max Neumann – Wanderung am 28. April von 18 bis 21 Uhr bei LEVY in Berlin in Anwesenheit des Künstlers und im Rahmen des Gallery Weekend Berlin (28. bis 30. April 2023) einzuladen. Wir präsentieren Gemälde und Zeichnungen des Künstlers aus allen seinen Schaffensphasen. 
Der Maler Max Neumann (*1949) zählt zu einem wichtigen Vertreter der deutschen figurativen Gegenwartskunst. Mit seinen rätselhaften Figurationen in entrückten Bildszenerien und geheimnisvollen Porträts zielt er nicht auf das subjektive Abbild eines Individuums, sondern auf die Kristallisation des unverwechselbaren Sinnbildes des Menschen. Seine Charaktere zeigen sich in ihren zugleich beunruhigenden wie auch anmutigen Silhouetten von Zeit und Geschichte befreit als symbolhafte Träger menschlicher Zustände. Neumann erzählt keine Geschehnisse, sondern zeichnet emotionale Zustände nach, wobei dem Betrachter ein Spiegel der eigenen Träume und Ängste, Obsessionen und Phantasmen vor Augen gehalten wird. Auch der formale Aspekt ist dabei von großer Bedeutung, so sind die Bildelemente in der Fläche perfekt austariert und lassen in ihrer Bildsprache klare grafische, manches Mal sogar kalligrafische Züge, entdecken, die ein konstruiertes Übereinander an Wirklichkeitsebenen und die atmosphärische Schattenornamentik begünstigen.

We are pleased to invite you to the opening of the exhibition Max Neumann – Journey at LEVY in Berlin on April 28 from 6 until 9 pm in the presence of the artist and in conjunction with the Gallery Weekend Berlin (Apr 28 until 30, 2023). We will present paintings and drawings of the artist from all creative periods of his work. 
The painter Max Neumann (*1949) is an important representative of German figuration. His enigmatic human figures seated in enraptured pictorial settings are not geared towards capturing a subjective, distinct portrayal, but towards the crystallization of an unmistakable manlike allegory. His characters, in their at once disconcerting and graceful silhouettes, fall out of time and history being markers of a human state of mind. Neumann does not intend to narrate any incidents; he rather traces emotional human qualities confronting the viewer with his own desires, fears, obsessions and phantasms. The formal composition of his paintings is important, keeping all pictorial elements perfectly balanced, following a visual language that conveys clear graphic and partly calligraphic features, bringing forward an overlay of reality spheres and an evocative ornamentation of the shadows.

Max Neumann turns the human figure into an abstract symbol, reducing his compositions to their pure essence. His faceless heads and bodies constitute a leitmotif of the artist's work, a subject that carries tremendous weight despite their spare detail and placement in a rootless space. He draws from memory, dreamlike fragmented recollections reduced to the outline, shape and shadows of the originals. Neumann has constructed a visual vocabulary born from innumerable sources, including picture magazines, newspapers, and other media. He works primarily with black, but splashes of colour sometimes make their appearance into his paintings and drawings, suggesting a deeper meaning. The artist leaves the viewer to fill in the gaps and construct imaginary narratives, as his compositions exist outside of time and space. With their bareness, Neumann's paintings possess an emotive power that is remarkably real, yet entirely inferred.

   Born in 1949 in Saarbruck, Germany, Neumann studied art in Kalsruhe and later at the University of Fine Arts in Berlin. He has been the recipient of many awards including the BDI (Germany Industry Federation), the Villa Romana Award, the Dr. Dietrich Schluz Foundation Award, the Award of the City of Iserlohn, and the Grand Prix de S.A.S. le Prince Rainer III of Monaco. In 2012, he had his first solo exhibition in New York.
   Since the late 1970s, the artist has had more than 150 solo exhibitions internationally, including at the Museum Folkwang, Essen; Saarlandmuseum, Saarbruck; the Centre d'Art Plastiques, Royan; Espace d'Art Contemporain André Malraux, Colmar; Gallery Vidal-Saint Phalle, Paris; Gallery Stefan Röpke, Cologne; Gallery Pascal Polar, Brussels; Mimmo Scognamiglio Arte Contemporanea, Milan; Galería Arnés y Röpke, Madrid; Gallery Georg Nothelfer, Berlin and Satani Gallery, Tokyo.
   His works are in numerous public and private collections such as the Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin; The Museum Folkwag, Essen; Museo de Bellas Artes, Oviedo; Hamburger Kunsthalle; Fondation Maeght, St. Paul de Vence; and the Seibu Museum, Tokyo. Max Neumann lives and works in Berlin. This is his first exhibition in India.
Seagull Books has published his work in Self-Portrait of An Other, text by Cees Nooteboom and images by Max Neumann. On the occasion of the exhibition in Calcutta, February 2019, Poetry and Time featuring images by Max Neumann and text by Joachim Sartorius was released.
