Klaus Fußmann. Klaus Fussmann - Little Pleasures

Klaus Fußmann paints after nature. He paints what spring and summer in the landscape around Gelting and in the wild garden around his studio house offer him. He captures moments of exuberant beauty, which – although they foresee later decay – feel like a triumph. Fußmann shares these barely tangible moments with the viewer just as he shares with us all his knowledge of the rich treasure of painting and colors.

But Fußmann's painting is truly more than just a little pleasure (Kleine Freude). It is a great gift to the viewer and when we look at the ca. 40 works from almost as many creative years, we feel his experience of change at close range. Fußmann paints the becoming and fading .

They are very attentive observations in which the artist omits and exaggerates, in which colors and forms melt and dissolve in order to reunite in a chord of the most beautiful colors. All this hits us right in the heart, because the passion for nature, the artist's great joy of life and his positive view of the world are deeply human.

Klaus Fußmann - Little Pleasures | fundraising for charity (accomplished)

Where do you go in times of Corona when everyone should stay at home, but you do not have a home?

At the moment, not only companies are facing enormous challenges. People on the edge of society and aid organizations are suffering all the more from the current situation.

We have decided to help and take the current online exhibition of »Little Pleasures« (Kleine Freuden) with works by Klaus Fußmann as an opportunity to support a charity that is particularly close to our hearts. fifty-fifty is the title of our local street newspaper that the homeless of our city are selling and that usually provides for them. Corona has made all the passers-by vanish. Their very low income has therefore fully disappeared, which is why it is almost impossible to make ends meet.

UPDATE: Both linocuts are sold out. Contact us for similar artworks!

If you would like to support homeless people in Dusseldorf beyond our charity action, you can also support fifty-fifty fifty-fifty by purchasing other works.

With warm greetings from the Ludorff gallery staff,

Yours
Manuel Ludorff
