Knoebel’s exhibition Green Flags features new and recent paintings in bright cadmium red.

Arranged on the wall like celestial bodies, the recent multi-part Konstellationen series consists of monochrome shapes based on the artist’s 1975 light projections onto the exteriors and interiors of buildings. Perhaps named for the afterimages they produce in the eye, the titular Green Flags series are reminiscent of flying flags.

Additionally, the exhibition features examples of Knoebel’s Kinderstern (‘Children’s Star’) works, an unlimited edition begun in 1988. Proceeds from this series will go to a charity established by the artist and his wife Carmen, supporting the rights of children around the world.
