Portal of Glory | Vilma Gold | London | 2006

Vilma Gold is pleased to present the first London solo show exhibition by Berlin-based artist Stefan Rinck. For the past five years Rinck has documented his peers and contemporaries rendering them in paint and stone-carvings. Rinck’s works form an imaginary world where his friends and colleagues are depicted in invented scenarios, and surrounded by religious iconography.  Totemic busts, animals and reliefs are carved from sandstone, drawing from the imagery of the primitive, familiar symbols from Egyptian and Christian mythology and fairytale folklore.   Rinck’s paintings are reminiscent of Fauvism, and the harsh angular figures from the works of the German Expressionists.  Like the Expressionists, Rinck makes frequent depictions of friends, lovers, and patrons from his inner circle of friends and peers.
