Mike MacKeldey "DAS BROT IST DAS TELLER" GALERIE SUPPER 2018
The main work of the painter Mike MacKeldey refers repeatedly to the head or the portrait. In his work it is not about clearly identifiable images of people, but the portraits are because of thickly applied colours more and more blurred, destroyed, and painted over and so they changed into a more abstract direction. In the still wet paint the artist scratches and scribbles intuitively conceived texts or drawings, which are often concerned with the work in an ironically way. There are allusions to the stories that lie behind the portrayed and the viewer can discover for themselves.
