• Figures between reality and invention – Karlheinz Oswald’s sculptures are an intermixture between highly worked ones for which a female dancer has posed and sculptures devised in creative spontaneity from memory after the ballet rehearsal. In both ways he is successful in capturing this brief moment that is cast in bronze.

  • As part of the artistic „Junge Wilde“ (German for „wild youth“) movement he reacted against the prevailing abstraction of the 1980s by returning to figurative painting. Thereafter Bernd Zimmer discovered the depth and power of nature. Ever since he has devoted himself to the themes of nature like desert, cosmos, sea, sky and forest as essence of untouched landscapes.

  • José de Guimarᾶes has been living and working in Lisbon and Paris since 1995. After 40 years as a painter and sculptor he is one of the best known contemporary artists of international reputation in both Portugal and France. Exhibitions of his works do not only take place in Europe but all over the world e. g. in USA, Japan and China. His solo exhibitions were held in many museum in Europe, as well as in the Today Art Museum in Beijing in 2007 and Suzhou Modern Art Museum in 2013.

  • The artistic approach of the sculpture-couple, Livia Kubach and Michael Kropp, can be characterized as conceptional-constructive. They use just one kind of stone, almost exclusively – deep black granite from Sweden, Africa, India or China – which for them is synonymous with density and weightiness. The aim of their artistic concept is to explore new, unknown characteristics of the stone for their artistic purposes.

  • Transparency, fragility and spaces are the main themes of Ulli Böhmelmann’s work. Her objects are made of a diverse range of materials such as paper, silicon or non-woven fabric. The artist focuses on location-related installations. They are a reaction to the respective surrounding and strengthen the special situation. The artist creates and draws attention to a content-related mood, focusing on the real and sensual perception of spaces.

On an area of 1.000 square metres Gallery Winter established an art cellar in the estate Georg Müller Stiftung in 2004. A unique synthesis becomes an unforgettable experience: A 250 years old historic wine cellar vault in a new dialogue with contemporary art – very impressively and exciting.

A permanent exhibition concept was developed showing light objects and installations of various artists.
