The young Anja Knoess Gallery is participating in art KARLSRUHE for the sixth time. Ever since its founding in Cologne in 2015, this gallery has regularly shown international and contemporary tendencies in painting, sculpture and photography at the fair in Karlsruhe. In addition to artists from Germany and other European countries, the gallery’s program also includes artists from China and the United States. When she selects artists and artworks for her gallery, Anja Knoess, who has also served as a member of art KARLSRUHE’s advisory board, relies on “characteristic painterly, photographic or sculptural approaches”, both in the choice of media and in the artistic implementation in the exciting field between figuration and abstraction.

For example, Gallery Anja Knoess is bringing to the fair Axel Anklam (born in 1971), who creates light-reflecting and light-absorbing sculptures from stainless steel, carbon and fibreglass, as well as Sabine Beyerle (born in 1975), who is known for her perspectivally nested spaces.

Anja Knoess is dedicating a One-Artist-Show to the Dutch artist Koen Vermeule (born in 1965), who paints seascapes and cityscapes that penetratingly reflect on society and its rapid technological evolution.
