Art at 45 Park Lane
At 45 Park Lane guests are offered a rich and varied art programme including personal exhibition tours by artists themselves, the opportunity to take painting lessons with artists and special access to their personal studios. While the artwork in the restaurant, guest rooms and corridors is permanent, the hotel also holds a series of intimate and exclusive temporary exhibitions and displays.
Following the success of Julien Marinetti and Robert Indiana’s exhibitions, the current exhibition in the 2015 programme includes:
Rotraut – symbols of the ‘collective unconsciousness’ – June 25 until September 1, 2015
June sees the launch of an exclusive exhibition by German artist, Rotraut, at 45 Park Lane, as part of its quarterly ‘Brush with Art’ exhibition series. The exhibition will officially launch on Thursday, 25 June in the Lobby and will be accompanied by an additional sculpture created by Rotraut near the garden at The Dorchester.
Born in East Germany before the Second World War, Rotraut’s early life of working on a farm with her father had a decisive impact on her art. It was during her childhood that she felt a lasting affinity to nature and it is amongst the natural elements that she draws her inspiration and sense of peace. Essentially self-taught, Rotraut’s primary influence was her brother Gunther Uecker, and her first husband, Yves Klein. The playful contours of the curious forms, which first appeared in her paintings, and more recently as ceramic reliefs and free-standing sculptures, have been likened to Matisse’s paper cut-outs.
Rotraut’s forms are symbols of the ‘collective unconsciousness’ of that cosmic abundance, spiritual gifts of joy and well-being which the artist happily shares with the viewer who momentarily enters her time and space.
