With this exhibition in Ettlingen Castle, the city of Ettlingen honours the work and the artist Hanspeter Münch on the occasion of his 80th birthday. It focuses on works of the last five years.
Münch develops the criteria of his work to a great extent from the Italian painting tradition and French colorism: His works are filled with the light of the South, sometimes also with the denser atmosphere of his native Baden. Associations with motifs from the representational world, such as vegetation and landscapes, can always be sensed in his moving color spaces and modulations. Münch develops his painting with great verve, expressive gestures and a sure feeling for the sensuality of colour.
