Main Fine Art, Glasgow Print Studio, Compass Gallery, Glasgow
Natasha Mann (above in the mask of a rabbit) allows no join to exist where the animal kingdom ends and the human one begins. Her paintings throw the lot together in colourful sensuality, the serpent slinking inextricably between Adam and Eve.
Most oithe paintings in the Main Gallery have been made directly on glass with the result that the Kandinsky blues and yellows are bright and clear. The technique lends an extra melting lusciousness to the erotic ligures, whose decorated nudity is unashamedly erect. There is no sign of Northern restraint here.
At the Glasgow Print Studio another Niirnberg artist explores the borders between man and animal. Once a graphic artist, Hans-Jorg Diirr's tascination lor bird-men moves to studies of masks. He uses little colour. Black charcoal or paint are charged with energy, vibrant enough alone. Eyes, nose and mouth are pulled and torn apart in combinations which ultimately decompose their identity into taut abstracts.
Max Sbllner at the Compass Gallery is the most accomplished at all the Niirnberg artists. Now in his titties, he tips objects, sometimes hall- recognisable but most at the time abstracted, carelully into paintings and etchings. Lines are weighed and balanced with the delicate precision 01 a mathematical equation. His list-sized sculptures, a round silver head and miniature throne among them, transpose the lormula into three dimensions. Check listings for details of all Niirnberg exhibitions. (Alice 88in)
