Pure Lust am Malen - Horst Gläsker


A cordial invitation to the opening of the exhibition on the 1st of July 2017 at 18.30 in the Stadthalle Linz, Strohgasse 12, 53545 Linz am Rhein



"Gläskers painting is the pure pleasure in painting and in the rhythm of the brush strokes. The person himself vibrates to his fingertips when it comes to the dynamics of the images. Therein lies neither nervousness nor uncertainty, but rather the throbbing pulse of excited sensations. They fulfil the artist, as otherwise only a piece of music can..."

Dual exhibition: "Gegenwelten" - Horst Gläsker and Harald Fuchs


A cordial invitation to the opening of the exhibition on the 6th of November 2016 at 11.00 in the Galerie Münsterland, Friedrichstraße 3, Emsdetten

For its second exhibition project in 2016, the board of trustees of the Galerie Münsterland was able to enlist the support of two renowned artists for a thematic dual exhibition: Horst Gläsker (painter and sculptor) from Düsseldorf and Harald Fuchs (multimedia installations) from Cologne. What connects the two is that they both keep on occupying themselves intensely in their artistic work with questions of worldly wisdom, world and counter world, inverted world, world models, science and myth. Both share a strong affinity for non-European moral concepts.



Under the title "In This Colourful Reflection We Have Life Itself." (J. W. Goethe: Faust II), Horst Gläsker displays an extensive pictorial spatial installation which was created as a 1:1 draft and which was implemented for a bank in Frankfurt. The space in the Galerie Münsterland will in a way be turned into a canvas on which the artist transports us in a rapture of colour into a world in which colour is the meaningful determining factor.



Harald Fuchs has developed a multimedial installation with the title "Living Materials - Ruanda" which is based upon his visit to the Ntarama Genocide Memorial Centre in Kigali (Rwanda) in 2009, where more than 5000 members of the Tutsi tribe were massacred during the genocide in 1994.


Welcome speech: Georg Moenikes, Mayor of Emsdetten
Introduction: Ingrid Raschke-Stuwe, Art Historian

Duration of the exhibition: November 6th to December 18th 2016
Opening times:
Thursday - Friday: 16.00 to 19.00
Saturday: 15.00 to 18.00
Sunday: 11.00 to 18.00

10 years of SCALA: the painted Holsteiner Stairs in Wuppertal shines with brilliant new colours!


Photo: Peter Krämer


The colours have suffered from the effects of wind, weather and many years of constant use,
and have now been renewed with participation of the artist.

SCALA was originally created as a temporary work of art in 2006, and was recreated in 2008 due to
a citizens' initiative. Now, 10 years later, it has been restored once again.
The national and international feedback to the Wuppertal SCALA is still extremely high.
The painted steps have taken on a life of their own and travel worldwide through the internet.
The SCALA words have been translated into many languages. Internet platforms, especially in the areas of
street art, architecture, design and colour, show and comment on the Holsteiner Stairs.
In a ranking of the worlds most beautiful steps, which can be found at
boredpanda.com/most-beautiful-steps-stairs-street-art, SCALA is in 6th place from 17 entries!
The list of international publications (books on street art, colour in architecture, public art)
in which the Wuppertal steps play an exclusive role is also growing.

Horst Gläsker

Opening: 21.05.2016
Time: 16:00 to 19:00

Gläskers painting is the pure pleasure in painting and in the rhythm of the brush strokes. The person himself vibrates to his fingertips when it comes to the dynamics of the images. Therein lies neither nervousness nor uncertainty, but rather the throbbing pulse of excited sensations. They fulfil the artist, as otherwise only a piece of music can. Rhythm. A measure of time, not a primarily visual terminus, was more important to the painter than all of the concepts that revolve around sensations of the retina. This passionate peintre pur is simultaneously saxophonist and clarinettist, mouth organ player and step organ stepper, although his appearances have long become brush dances. In rhythm he combines his musical existence with his painterly existence. It is the greatest common denominator on which his art is based. Rhythm is the basis of his central contribution to painting: the rediscovery of ornaments and free ornamentation.

Song of the Painter - CosmosJazz - CD


Improvised musical inspirations
A live recording taped in Düsseldorf on the 17th and 18th of September 2015
Horst Gläsker - Saxophone, Vocals, Percussion
Martin Hauf - Synthesizer, Inspirator MH-01


Horst Gläsker and Martin Hauf have worked in the same studio building for more than 20 years.
In September 2015 they had the idea of making music together - with no rehearsals, no conventions.
The CD "Song of the Painter" was created in just two days.

The idea:
There is no conductor, no leader or follower.
Neither of them can tell the other what should happen when in which way, or even why it should happen.
No cover versions and no so-called jazz, rock or pop standards.
This inevitably leads to the musicians involved being thrown back on themselves.
Each of them hears what is happening, and contributes based on their feelings and ability.
The result is an experimental cosmos of sound, full of ideas, fantasy and humour.
