Tim Eitel’s medium is figurative painting, of which he is an exceptionally gifted master. His motifs include people in everyday situations, abandoned buildings and garbage containers in seemingly completely empty spaces. A common feature of these paintings is that they center on people and human activity, but Eitel achieves this so undramatically that the viewer merely has a sense of something intangible going on between the brushstrokes. A silent dynamism.

An Influence on Contemporary Danish Art
Tim Eitel was born in 1971 and has already made a name for himself on the international art scene. In 2001 he graduated from the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst which fostered a whole generation of painters, known today as the Leipziger school. This will be the first time Eitel presents a solo exhibition in Denmark, but in recent years he has had a significant influence on an entire generation of Danish painters.

Exhibition Opening
Die Bewohner opens on Friday, 4 July, at 5 p.m. The Chairman of the Art Council Representatives, Uffe Andreasen, will give the opening speech. The artist himself will be present. The exhibition will be open to the public from 5 July through 31 August, 2008.

The exhibition is organized in collaboration with Kunsthalle Tübingen and Kunsthalle zu Kiel. It is supported by Montana A/S, the Goethe Institute, Copenhagen, and the German Embassy, Copenhagen.
