From September 08 to October 15, 2011 – Galerie Karl Pfefferle
Rhythm and the liveliness of the colours by Robert Delaunay and the effective perception of the colour sequence by George Seurat have been the major sources of the art of Yalcindag. The union between the form of canvas and patterns on the surface has significant importance for the artist. Besides “watching everyday life as colours” brings a pop character into the paintings, usage of contrasts such as light and dark, warm and cold generates an optic effect.

Drawings and watercolor paintings of the Blue Rider from the collection of Munich’s Lenbachhaus.
The Blue Rider (“Der Blaue Reiter”) was a loose grouping of artists, named after the almanac first published by Wassily Kandinsky and Franz Marc in 1912 in Munich. In 1911 and 1912 they organized two exhibitions of works by artists, who pursued similar artistic ideas to those of the two artisteditors. In 1957 the Lenbachhaus in Munich came into the possession of more than 400 artworks by Gabriele Münter and her long-time partner Wassily Kandinsky, left to it following Münter’s death.
The exhibition will feature works by the following artists: August Macke, Franz Marc, Marianne von Werefkin, Alexej von Jawlensky, Wassily Kandinsky, Robert Delaunay, Heinrich Campendonk, Gabriele Münter, Paul Klee, and Alfred Kubin.
