Open Monday to Friday from 11am to 6pm or by prior arrangement

The exhibit at ZOTT Artspace will be artist Ricky Gumbrecht’s first in Europe. In collages and paintings somewhere between abstraction and figuration, she condenses color and form, layers and assonance to create playful pieces that are both sensual and mysterious.

Ricky Gumbrecht was born in Idar-Oberstein (Rhineland-Palatine) in 1958. After completing her studies in linguistics as well as French and Spanish literature at the Ruhr-University Bochum, she worked as a high school teacher before moving to Stanford with her family in 1989. Gumbrecht began her art training at the Pacific Art League in Palo Alto. She shares a studio with Terenia Offenbacker, both artists relying on Lowell Sims for technical assistance as well as material sourcing. Her pieces, mostly large-format paintings and collages somewhere between figuration and abstraction, have been exhibited in California where they have been acquired by American and European collectors. Ricky Gumbrecht has been married to the literary theorist Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht since 1989. The couple have two children in California and two in Europe.

International platform for contemporary art by mSE Solutions

ZOTT Artspace is an international platform for contemporary art by mSE Solutions. It was founded in 2014 at the mSE location Singapore as a place for creative exchange between artists and art lovers. A second exhibition space was opened in San Cassiano in the Dolomites. In 2017, ZOTT Artspace moved into its current project rooms in Munich’s museum quarter. Additional exhibitions have been presented in Hamburg and Venice. In the fall of 2019, creativity and innovation will find yet another location with ZOTT Artspace at the border of the Bavarian alps. In Unterammergau, the mSE Kunsthalle is being constructed. It will feature exhibition rooms and a sculpture garden.

Was ZOTT Artspace anbietet

Is a work of art appealing to us? Does it maybe even move us? If so, it is only then that we can experience its full power and beauty. ZOTT Artspace wants to create these special moments through its exhibitions, events and background information.

“Experience Art” and “Understand Art” – ZOTT Artspace offers encounters with artists and their creative process as well as stories and insights into contexts, which provide new ways of perceiving works of art.
