a solo show by

Frank J. Schäpel

“I don’t believe in safety through ignorance.” Chris Mellon

In 'REALITIES' werde ich die drei hauptsächlichen Topoi meines Schaffens beispielhaft vorstellen: Anatomie, Astronomie und UFO Phänomen.

Die ausgestellten Werke stammen aus den ersten beiden Jahrzehnten des 21. Jahrhunderts, das die meisten dem Holozän, einige dem Anthropocene und wenige dem Psychozoikum zurechnen.
