Jan Holthoff in "Guest List" at Lehr Gallery, Cologne

Three represented artists at Lehr Zeitgenössische Kunst in Cologne show their works opposite three guest artists. Jan Holthoff invited his colleague Ildefons Höyng, who like Holthoff studied at the Düsseldorf Academy.  The website explains that while Holthoff's romantic landscapes integrate representation and abstraction, Höyng's color field paintings explore the limits of the picturesque without falling into representation. Höyng was a master student of Gerhard Richter. The show runs through July 28.
