Abigail Ogilvy Gallery is proud to present Picnic, a group exhibition featuring Mishael Coggeshall-Burr, Wilhelm Neusser, Anna Schuleit Haber, Amanda Wachob and Natalia Wrobel. All five artists focus on depicting places or moments in time infused with emotion, memories and personal experience. The works in the exhibition speak to their personal history, especially related to location. Picnic introduces two new artists to the gallery program, Mishael Coggeshall-Burr and Amanda Wachob. Coggeshall-Burr paints blurred cityscapes depicting the streets of Paris, while Wachob creates canvases with a surrealist technique called decalcomania- combining fine art and the art of tattooing. In his second exhibition at Abigail Ogilvy Gallery, Wilhelm Neusser’s paintings push beyond the romantic landscape, creating a dark atmosphere yet maintaining hope on the far horizon. Natalia Wróbel’s abstract paintings reach beyond a physical space, combining the serious with whimsy through texture, movement, and color. Anna Schuleit Haber’s work has a curious harmony, taking the viewer on a visual journey of the Tempelhof Airport, a place rich in international history. In Picnic, the artists have distinctive practices that take unpredictable detours.
