Wolfgang Siemens

Wolfgang Siemens

Wolfgang Siemens, a great neo expressionist artist, we have accompanied for several years, died in February 2016. Scion of the famous Siemens-family, he studied under Friedrich Vordemberge and Karl Marx at the Kölner Werkschulen, where he had lectured later on himself. He got widely known by exhibitions at the Kölner Josef-Haubrich Kunsthalle, and further solo exhibitions in NYC, Paris, Morocco. In 1986 he had destroyed his paintings to start again in 1990 with new painting. A comprehensive insight into his work and his life conveys the monograph: Siemens – Der Maler/ The Painter, Cologne 2000.

 

John C. B. Moore

Our friend, the English artist and photographer John Constantin Brancusi Moore (* 1934), died in his home near Paris in November 2016. Son of the famous artist Constantin Brancusi and the wonderful concert pianist and assistant to Brancusi Vera Moore, they created him as a 'child of art'. He inherited his father in the passion for photography and art-technology. Never recognised officially by the titan born at Hobita, Gorj County, Moore lived in France with the still living memory of the times passing by. As a very close friend of Alain Bernadain he worked e.g. for and inspired the famous cabaret Crazy Horse.
