Packing is the task today and thinking of all the things to think of before heading off to pretty much the most northern point of Germany. I am working with a friend and colleague over the next weeks on two wall paintings as part of a private commission on the island of Sylt. It's going to be an exciting project that unfortunately I will be rare with posting pictures given the word "private" which I do respect since it's not in a public space but will hopefully beautify a private home once finished.
Last night at the fabulous tea time with British cookies and an exquisite and flowery Earl Gray the Kulturbotschaft and guests celebrated the Midissage of my current exhibition "Connections" that is still running through to the 30th January.
Neben der aktuellen "Connections"-Ausstellung findet gleichzeitig eine kleine Kooperation zwischen der Galerie Kulturbotschaft und einem Hamburger Geschäft für regionale Lebensmittel, Hausgemachtes und Manufaktur-Leckereien wie Käse, Saft, Honig, Senf, Essig, Konfitüre und Brot. Alle Produkte mit der Prämisse Biologisch, keine Massentierhaltung und garantiert ohne Zusätze. Auch dort sind Gemälde von Ernesto Heen bis Ende Januar zu entdecken. Zu sehen sind die Bilder der Erdbeer-Trillogie als "süße Gegenstücke" zu den herzhaften Produkten in den Auslagen.
Bleibt nur noch ein genussreicher Einkauf zu wünschen im:
ALLES KÄSE + CO, Weidenallee 44, 20357 Hamburg
Allen Kursteilnehmern von den Kursen Aquarell I und Aquarell II, dem Zeichenkurs sowie dem gesamtem Team des Goldbekhauses Hamburg Winterhude wünsche ich eine frohes Weihnachtsfest, eine erholsame und besinnliche Pause und einen fantastischen Start in ein kreatives Neues Jahr!
"Im Aufgang", Aquarell, 15 x 10 cm, E. Heen, 2018
Hello people & sorry for the long wait for updates! :-/
I am busy attending the 29th International Summer Academy PENTIMENT in Hamburg. Im am working in the course lead by German painter Klaus Hartmann alongside fantastic creatives and painting experts. The topic of cacti in all their forms and associations has become very rich and already created outstanding pieces of art in our studio under the roof of the Hamburg Uni for Art and Design. Despite the high temperatures and two very diligent air ventilators we keep concentrating on experimentation with form, colour, texture, material, size and literally everything that is modifiable.
There will be a public exhibition on Sunday 12th August with all works from 11am to 4pm at HAW Mediencampus, Finkenau 35, Hamburg 22081, Germany. Would be great to meet you for a chat and mutual walkaround ;-D
All the best and let's keep the good weather coming!
Being in good exchanges with the Artist and Founder of the AERA association Pat Harrison, I love to draw attention to the AERA website today to promote the constant work and development of contemporary realist art in both directions two and three dimensional works.
I see so many great works from living artists worldwide that it seems to be an entering into a great new artistic area.
The works of artists like Marco Grassi, Javier Malavia Tabares, Cesar Santos, David Kassan, Katie G. Whipple, Eric Wert, Joshua LaRock, Pamela Wilson, Lisa Lebofsky, Shane Wolf, Jonathan Pointer (just to name some!) have created absolutely stunning masterpieces that won't stop to excite and inspire me every time I look at them.
Don't miss out to research a bit on the web and in social media and be on the watch even more to get a chance to see some of their works with your own eyes.
I encourage you to support realist art so that it can continue to grow and cast its wonder and beauty into our world.
Busy like the bees in the garden these days. But I found the time to go and capture the Magnolia buds before they break into glory. And so there it is a small, rough Allaprima just done outside with a set of primary colours on a little piece of canvas. Not being so much trained in outside painting I thought that'll be a good old step out of the comfort zone and away from regular studio work.
And oh, how wonderful to be in the green! Enjoy the Springtime!
