Dear friends of art,

We are delighted to be able to show works by the artist Victor Shtivelberg again in our gallery with the new exhibition AugenBlicke, which last delighted the public in 2019 in the exhibition Watching and Listening.

At the same time, we would also like to take this opportunity to announce that Galerie Paqué will from now on permanently represent works by Victor Shtivelberg, kindly provided to us by Ninelle Shtivelberg!

The painter from the Ukraine (*1960 in Odessa) with Jewish roots studied at the Odessa Art School and has been working as a freelance painter since 1987. Elements of symbolism, surrealism and a reference to realism can be found in his works, but Victor Shtivelberg vehemently rejects any categorization of his art. What is certain is that the artist draws his imagery from the subconscious or his inner world, which he tries to depict as clearly as possible. The motifs of his art come from Jewish mysticism, which is interwoven with Christian and Zen Buddhist elements. Technically, the artist mainly uses oil painting, but his repertoire also includes gouaches, pastels, graphics and acrylic paintings. The focus is on the masterful handling of composition, form, color and material.

The title of this exhibition comes from the gallery owner and ex-wife of the artist, Ninelle Shtivelberg, who addresses the following words to the public:

“I thought about it; just as pearls or stones are strung together on a string to form a necklace, a beautiful piece of jewelry, our lives consist of a series of many “Augenblicke”, moments – snapshots. And here we have the good fortune that someone in this room has captured such moments. Victor Shtivelberg captures moments. And you can see that every moment, every instant is very important. Nothing happens by chance, nothing is really chaotic or meaningless. This exhibition is an invitation for you to stop and enjoy the moment. I am very grateful to be able to share these moments with you. Just as the pearls form a chain, moments form the chain of our lives. And so pictures of life form this exhibition.”

The exhibition will once again kick off with a concert, this time presented by pianist Nina Gurol, who is celebrating her solo debut in our gallery and music studio. The program includes works by Domenico Scarlatti, Robert Schumann, Leoš Janáček, Emilie Mayer and Franz Schubert. Further information and registration for the concert can be found here.

Victor Shtivelberg was born in Odessa, Ukraine, in 1960. There he graduated from the Odessa Art School. Since 1987 he has participated in over 30 solo exhibitions and more than 60 group exhibitions in many countries. His paintings are exhibited in museums and can be found in numerous private collections worldwide. In 1991 he became a member of the International Art Association.

Although Victor Shtivelberg’s works are based on realism, it is the mysticism of his inner world that brings his paintings to life. They cast a unique spell over the viewer in a wonderful way. Symbols from different cultures are interwoven, speak their own language and tell stories that are neither realistic nor surrealistic. Over the years, Victor has developed a brilliant, mature and very individual color palette, which he uses with great sensitivity.
