Emanuel Heim

Emanuel Heim is the favorite of our regular customers and is currently in great demand. In 2022, Emanuel Heim's first major solo exhibition took place at the Theater Rüsselsheim (DE), together with curator Dr. Karin Mairitsch. He was also part of the group exhibitions "Auswahl 22" at Kunsthaus Aarau and the "Jahresausstellung 2022" at Kunstmuseum Chur. His preferred technique is oil painting. However, analog photography, printing techniques and drawings are also used in the process. We act as Emanuel Heim's management.

Emanuel Heim, born in 1992 in Lenzburg, Switzerland, completed the preliminary design course at the Aarau School of Design and then attended the specialist class for graphics, space and new media at the Basel School of Design for two semesters. He then completed the specialist class for graphics in Lucerne. After graduation in 2014 followed, among other things in internships, an in-depth examination of book and poster design as well as scenography, which initiated the development of his independent work as a designer. After a trip through the Balkan states, he moved to Berlin in 2017 and visibly concentrated on his artistic-painterly exploration.

After three residencies with the Palace Collective in Gorzanów, Poland and several group exhibitions in Berlin and at Network of Arts in Lucerne, Emanuel Heim's first major solo exhibition took place in 2022 at the Theater Rüsselsheim, with curator Dr. Karin Maitritsch. Works by Heim are represented in the Network of Arts collection and in various private collections, among others.

"Characteristic for Heim are his concisely bold colors and the sovereign gestural handwriting, with which he operates on the floating border between expressive figural or natural representations and the derailment of representationalism to abstract spatial contexts, surfaces and forms. ... Motivically, Heim focuses on the human being, how he also struggles for community in his search for himself, and how he locates himself in a world that is just as connected to nature as it is to architectural scenery or geometric forms and artifacts." - Dr. Karin Mairitsch, excerpt from the exhibition text "Immerfort" (Forever).

Besides the solo exhibition at the Theater Rüsselsheim (DE), Emanuel Heim was part of the group exhibitions "Auswahl 22" at the Kunsthaus Aarau and "Jahresausstellung 2022" at the Kunstmuseum Chur in 2022.
