A catalogue of Weischer’s exhibition was also published by Hatje Cantz, with financial support from the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative.
His mentor, David Hockney, is very appreciative of Matthias Weischer’s new work and reflects fondly on his time spent with him. “His work interested me at first because of his attitude to pictorial space and as I got to know it, more layers were revealed,” Hockney says. “He knows looking is a very positive act. The more one looks the more one sees. His skills as a draughtsman are revealed here, the deep pleasures of the hand, the eye and the heart.”
