Galerie Renate Bender was founded in 1987 and is located since April 2014 at Türkenstraße 11 in Munich, nearby the Munich Pinakotheks. From the very beginning the Gallery has featured international contemporary art that focuses on the reduction of forms in painting, photography and sculpture, primarily Minimalist, monochrome, and Concrete art on either traditional materials like canvas and paper as well as mixed media.
At this year’s Art Paris Art Fair Galerie Renate Bender is showing works of Peter Weber. Peter Weber was born in 1944 in Kollmar/Elbe, Germany, he lives and works near Munich, Germany. Peter Weber’s early years as a painter focused on Op-Art with its imaginary space but soon he was fascinated by the phenomenon of folding and the mathematical diversity of this technique. Folded works in paper, cotton, felt and synthetic materials and even steel now dominate his artistic work.
