Christopher Lehmphul: "Between Pathos and Pastos"

Museo Würth La Rioja

28 January 2021 until 30 January 2022

The Museo Würth in La Riojo is the second venue after the Museum Würth in Künzelsau to present the large-scale exhibition "Between Pathos and Pastos" with around 70 large-format landscapes and city views. The paintings are mainly from the Würth Collection and are supplemented by a few works from the artist's studio. On display are powerful, sculptural big-city motifs from his home city of Berlin, such as the "Tracks at Bornholmer Brücke" (2004), "Die neue Mitte" (2008) and with it the "Schlossplatz im Wandel" (2011), which Lehmpfuhl has been observing for over eleven years in a large painting cycle. Impressive motifs from other German cities, such as Lübeck's "Holstentor" (2011) or Hamburg's "Landungsbrücken" (2009), can also be found from his numerous painting trips. As landscape motifs, a "Storm on Helgoland" (2014), the mountain "Watzmann" (2008), a "Lava Field, Landmannalaugar" (2016) on Iceland or an "Indian Beach Scene" (2003) come to life in his paintings. During the tour, viewers can switch from the city to the countryside in a matter of seconds, from the mountains to the sea and visually accompany Christopher Lehmpfuhl on his painting journeys all over the world.
