Contemplating Inner Dimensions.
The early landscapes and color spaces by Uwe Henneken (born 1974 in Paderborn; lives and works in Berlin) show figures, beings, and creatures. Since the demise of his Imperium Schlemihlium (2008), they have begun to transform and gradually dissolve to make room for the rich, visionary expressiveness in the artist's most recent paintings. Henneken skillfully combines factual and metaphysical aspects, thereby granting the viewer insights into an entirely different and personal dimension. His pictorial worlds encourage intense contemplation and empathy.
The publication Always Returning documents Uwe Henneken's artistically multifaceted development since 2010; it is published on the occasion of the eponymous solo exhibition at Kunsthalle Gießen (2019). Katja Burggräfe, Uwe Henneken, Nadia Ismail, and Astrid Legge contributed texts and interviews.
