Alke Reeh

Adán López Alemán is a Spanish expressionist artist, who has exhibited his work throughout Europe. Working with mixed techniques and materials; watercolor, acrylic, oils, pastels, and ink, Adan is transforming the subject matter into a symphony of expression and movement.

His “soul paintings” capture personality, soul, and storyline in each portrait. In a combination of realism and expressionism, an atmosphere or mood is created that is characteristic in his work.

Portraiture and the moving figure are dominating his artistic career. References from the inner being and the struggle in life, are the resulting alchemy of originality that makes it all a thoughtful experience.

Lopez’s colorful black and white portraits are playing behind a “social mask”, opening the eyes, searching for the truth.

In his figure painting, we can feel the breeze and hear the wind moving through the bodies trying to hold on.

Aleman’s work has been featured in Lilienthal Gallery’s Opening Exhibition.

September – November

Architectural yet malleable– Reeh’s work harkens to the familiar geometry of cathedrals and contemporary structures to a more inviting place of tactility and simplicity. Harnessing the spiritual and meditative tradition of origami, Alke Reeh’s sacred geometry holds energy in the folds. In its compressed state, the object’s potential resonates to reach into space. As the pattern repeats, a rhythm emerges. Overall, the object is easily discerned by its form, yet the undulations and complexities draw the eye to revisit each segment again.

Her work is featured in Lilienthal Gallery’s Metamorphosis exhibition.
