Dorothea Schlueter Gallery presents new work by Helene Appel.

For her first exhibition with Dorothea Schlueter Gallery, Helene Appel will show new large format paintings. Appel’s work involves the meticulous scrutiny and depiction of objects, made complex and compelling in their isolation across otherwise raw canvas surfaces. In some recent large works fishing nets wave and shimmer with op-art like electricity, in others the tall glassy surfaces of up-ended rain-water puddles reflect back the muddy infinity of sublime and starry-eyed high abstraction. Appel’s exhibition at Dorothea Schlueter coincides with the publication of a catalogue of the artist’s work over the last five years, edited by the Mönchehaus Museum Goslar, and published by Textem Verlag, Hamburg.

Helene Appel studied at the Hochschule für Bildende Kunst, Hamburg, and graduated with an MA from the Royal College of Art, London in 2006. Since then she has exhibited widely, including shows in London, Berlin, and New York. She is the recipient of the 2011 Kaiserring Goslar Scholarship. Helene Appel lives and works in Berlin.

Dorothea Schlueter is a young gallery in Hamburg.

Dorothea Schlueter represents the work of Helene Appel, Nele Budelmann, Michael Deistler, Gudny Gudmundsdottir, Alexander Hoepfner, Simon Logan, Axel Loytved, Nicole Messenlehner, Heiko Neumeister, Rocco Pagel, Stefan Panhans, Alexander Rischer, Annette Wehrmann, Maria Zahle.
