Prints by Harald Reibke - A life with art

With his "color prints" we encounter an absolutely painterly conception of the woodcut. By emphasizing the wood structure, he succeeds in creating softly flowing tones. One thinks the yielding wood resonates. The parts are clearly and moderately structured. It is a sonorous coexistence, a modulation in hues and sounds.

Individual points of light lead the eye into the room. They are very atmospheric, partly mysterious light and shadow spaces. In his non-objective works, a formal transformation of natural impressions into abstraction takes place. Some follow a two-dimensional division of surfaces, in others there is a gradual division into space, staggering and layering of surfaces. Harald Reibke often exploits the wood grain in his woodcuts to emphasize the structure of his prints. This makes his prints particularly interesting.

The exhibition will be on display at St. Peter's Church beginning Oct. 12, 2022. It is open during "Open Church" Wednesdays and Saturdays, 11 a.m. - 1 p.m., as well as after church services and before and after all cultural events.
