passion for Porcelain
The new exhibition entitled "Passion for Porcelain" shows a cross-section of the artistic work of Helmut Drexler (*1927; †2016).
The 117 objects shown in the exhibition are structured according to certain basic techniques, thereby demonstrating Drexler's great love of experimentation. No two pieces are alike, everywhere there are new combinations, new interesting effects. But Helmut Drexler did not only produce individual pieces. As a decor designer, he became known to a wider public with the "Goldfeuer" decor for the Rosenthal collection, many others followed. The porcelain pictures also give an insight into the versatility of his skills - from classical floral painting to abstract design to complete abstraction. Helmut Drexler, whom his home town of Selb honoured in many ways, is not an artist who fits into a pigeonhole.
The exhibition was realised with the support of the Helmut and Käthe Drexler Foundation.
