Pippy Houldsworth Gallery is delighted to present Uwe Henneken’s first solo exhibition in London from 8 September to 21 October 2017. The private view will take place Thursday 7 September 6-8 pm.

Interested in the connection between artistic and shamanic states of mind, Henneken creates paintings that offer access to hallucinatory, trance-induced scenarios. Vivid, multi-coloured and often incomprehensible, the artist's allegorical works fluctuate between different moments in time, drawing heavily from German folklore, Romantic painting and hyper-real, modern imagery.

Pippy Houldsworth Gallery will also present new works by Henneken at Art Berlin from 14 to 17 September 2017 alongside early ‘cut-out’ sculptures from the 1980s by acclaimed British artist Bill Woodrow and large-scale paintings by young British painter Jadé Fadojutimi.

Uwe Henneken (born 1974, Paderborn, Germany) lives and works in Berlin. Selected solo exhibitions include those at Meyer Riegger, Berlin; Rodolph Janssen, Brussels; Capitain Petzel, Berlin; Kunstverein Heppenheim; Andrew Kreps Gallery, New York; Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich and Museum de Hallen, Haarlem. Selected group exhibitions include those at Sampling Boros, Berlin; Tanya Leighton, Berlin; Kunstpalais Erlangen; Kunstpalais Erlangen; me Collectors Room Stiftung Olbricht, Berlin and Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt.
