This year Felix Thyes would have celebrated his 80th birthday. On this occasion and to cherish his memory we will show the works he created in the last two years of his life and which he never had a chance to present to the public. These paintings and drawings will be juxtaposed with his older works, i.e. his figurative drawings from the 1980s. The Kulturschüür exhibition will be complemented with works by his two daughters. Parallels and mutual influences are unmissable.
„My paintings often address the idea of impermanence. An unstable condition that can change at a moment’s notice. Everything moves. The barely noticeable change in the lines’ trajectory in the acrylic paintings will affect their spatial perception in ways both large and small.“
