Veranstaltungen | Hüxstrasse in Lübeck
One year has passed, and the „Lübecker Museumsnacht" (Lübeck Museum Night) is coming up again. This year, we would like to show you the work of Kiel-based painter Jan Erichsen. The Bremen native has always felt a close connection to the North. The high sky with its constantly changing light, the flooded fields, and northern Germany's lowlands with their unique and melancholy atmosphere provided the first impulses for his artwork. Using pencil, coal, and watercolors, he began to grasp the landscape in which he grew up. Later, he discovered oil painting as the medium which best helped him to implement his ideas.
He is almost always equipped with a drawing pad and camera when he travels in the region or farther away, using them to capture spontaneous impressions to use for small or large paintings in his studio. His work seems photographically real at a distance, but up close you can see the slightly impressionistic touch he lovingly adds to his paintings.
Since the summer of 2009, he has returned to the Kiel Fjord, where he works as an architect and painter. We are very pleased that he has also selected Lübeck as a setting for his paintings. Come visit us during the „Lübecker Museumsnacht" on Saturday, August 31, 2013 from 6 - 11 p.m. and dive into his new paintings. The exhibition runs until October 12. Until then, you have the opportunity to view the paintings during our regular opening hours. Supported by:
