The year 2004 marked the launch of Dietmar Brixy’s fall shows at the Altes Pumpwerk Neckarau, a historical former pumping station. What inspires Brixy most of all this year is everything and anything related to wine: vines, leaves, burgeoning forms, and structures. And in the fall he invites visitors to join in “harvesting the grapes” (Weinlese).
» Vines and tendrils spread throughout the picture like veins penetrating the foreground and the background, ramifying and encompassing the whole painting giving it its inner as well as outer structure. «
