Without darkness, no light-without night, no day. In the past three years, Jurgen Heinrich has extensively occupied himself with the "night": in art, literature, and music. He has personally circled around the phenomenon of the night in various phases of his work. In painting, drawing, and artist's book, he has dedicated himself to all the facets of the night. For him, the night has become a metaphor of a pendulum swinging between the light and the dark, between melancholy and lightness. Literary texts and scholarly positions by various authors accompany these extraordinary pictorial worlds.
