Catalogue Note

""Located between tropical potted plants, at times twisting and turning like cobras, and gestural and geometric abstractions, with which Weischer conjugates Modernism, "beautiful living" was only rarely so terribly beautiful ... Faded walls, shattered windowpanes, languid curtains in a slack wind, dust-covered offices flooded in sunlight - all move from the reality of the economic disaster of industrial landscapes that refuse to flourish into the paintings of an artist who transforms them into mythical images of time stood still. Exquisite paintings with false bottoms that, in highly speculative self-reflection, can be understood as symbols of profitable economic barbarity ... The Westphalian in Leipzig stubbornly and romantically paints the emotional states of a generation that has much reason to believe that its future may have never begun." (Rudij Bergmann in Exhib. Cat., Leipzig, Museum fo Bildenden Kunste, Kunstpreis der Leipziger Volkszeitung: Matthias Weischer, 2005, p. 50)
