Exactly one month from now, STAR COOPERATION for the third time will prepare the stage for a regional artist and his works. With his exhibition “Deeper than the surface”, Helmut Anton Zirkelbach shows at STAR Insight 3, how, in art, a lot is taking place underneath the topmost visible level.
He is still captured by the art form of etching, even after 25 years. Whether it is the work material’s resistance, the variety of techniques or the unpredictability of chemical processes. He is ever surprised how the first printed sheet will eventually look like. In this, he shows a fine sense for the graphic possibility of etching and deep printing and consciously used different levels and colors for his works’ expressiveness. He is inspired not just by the landscapes around his studio situated on Schwäbische Alb, but also by musicians like Frédéric Chopin, to whom he has dedicated an entire work cycle.
Born in Schorndorf, Germany, Helmut Anton Zirkelbach has been working as a freelance artist since 19985 and he is a real expert for etchings. Since 2003, he has been passing on this knowledge asa lecturer for different art academies. His works could be seen at galleries and exhibitions for almost 30 years in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. He has won several awards for his work.
We cordially invite you to experience many interesting encounters with us and our guests in a relaxed atmosphere, with delicious food and cold drinks. You can sign up for STAR Insight here.
