About the artist

Beate Höing’s pictorial work shows image worlds based on photographic models from the 1970s and 1980s. The intimacy of a moment is captured in extracts. At first glance, the motifs depicted seem like a representation of an ideal world or a document of times gone by. The peaceful idyll is deceptive and, on second glance, seems to reveal a universe of ambiguity.

His ceramic works are conceived as an independent medium in interaction with painting. The ceramic material indirectly conveys the idea of kitsch, but also of traditional craftsmanship. This conceptual “mortgage” is provocatively enhanced by the artist. The incorporated porcelain knick-knacks and figurines, which have been the epitome of bourgeois preferences for centuries, loved as decorative items or souvenirs or dismissed as kitsch, now offer space for the imaginary and the fantastic.
Figures of girls, boys, dreaming or sleeping people, fairy tales, mythical creatures or animals: the figures grow fragilely from floral and opulent basic elements, stand alone or are presented in the form of figures in dialogue with the painting.
