Ten Haaf Projects is pleased to announce the exhibition ‘’ For Tomorrow’’ a solo show by Oliver Lanz. The German artist Oliver Lanz will show his latest series of abstract paintings in the gallery. On display are his larger canvases that he produced in 2008.

Lanz whose search for light and color has brought him to work on large canvases where he can experiment with space and transparency. To do so he mostly paints in a horizontal manner, so the layers of paint can be applied in a tonal wash giving his work an intensity of layers and depths. His work follows no rules or real motives, spontaneity is what drives him.
For Lanz his poetic light paintings are a journey on which he decides where he goes, painting for Lanz is his greatest adventure. His studio is his base from where he embarks on a journey in color and expressionism.
