Gast Michels (1954 - 2013): Movement in colour, form and symbols
Where? Marché-aux-Poissons -, L-2345 LUXEMBOURG Training/Conferences

du 7 octobre 2022 au 26 mars 2023

Guided tour

The Luxembourgish artist Gast Michels (1954-2013) was a remarkably keen observer of his environment. He meticulously analysed and decoded his surroundings, translating them into his own formal universe. Michels’ oeuvre has a unique formal language and features recurring symbols like wheels or arrows and a luminous colour palette, often dominated by the complementary colours blue and yellow. While the early work of the Echternach-born artist predominantly deals with seemingly mythical depictions of human figures in woodland settings, his later works have a more graphic pictorial language featuring highly stylised objects and signs. As a painter, sculptor and graphic artist, Michels worked in various mediums but always remained true to his expressive, symbolic and at times humorous and ironic visual language. This autumn, the Cercle Cité and the National Museum of History and Art present the artist's first comprehensive retrospective, covering 30 years of his work. The show consists of two parts and is on show at both exhibition venues. Temporary exhibition at the MNHA from 7 October 2022 to 26 March 2023 and at the Cercle Cité from 7 October 2022 to 22 January 2023.
