Benno Schlicht - Beyond Right Angles

German born artist Benno Schlicht is not a man of broad gestures. His images are relatively small and made in 'old fashioned' black and white. Off-hand and every now and so often just slightly out of focus, his images look as if culled from a forgotten family album.

A woman on New Year's Eve, a toddler, a scene on a beach, a house by the side of the road - again and again in a subcutaneous way his pictures tell a story of remembrance and loss. The impression of a photographic diary is intensified by Schlichts small interventions, like drawn lines and handwritten words.

Beyond Right Angles is an exhibition with personal character, also presenting drawings and montage. Schlicht (1962) lives and works in Essen, Germany.
