Hermann Valentin Schmitt: Colour Moves

Rockslide Gallery, Victoria, BC - Apr 4 – 20

by Robin Laurence

Through his brushy and brilliantly hued abstractions on canvas, paper, wood and copper plate, Hermann Valentin Schmitt communicates his personal responses to music and the natural world. Born in Heidelberg, Germany, and now dividing his time between Berlin and Victoria, Schmitt works with the powerful legacy of Abstract Expressionism. Colour Moves, his first solo exhibition in Canada, will be open to the public over three successive weekends in April, Thursday to Saturday, 4:30 to 7:30 pm.
