The exhibition “Masters in Form and Color” has been taking place every year for 20 years in the regional council in Karlsruhe. Also in the jubilee year, 30 master exams from Baden-Württemberg surprised visitors with impressive design ideas. Susanne Sachsenmaier-Wahl Here in the regional council, the Formula 1 of the painting and varnishing craft can be viewed!” Government Vice President Gabriela Mühlstädt-Grimm was happy when the exhibition opened. Just as a Formula 1 car is not moved on the street in everyday life, so many of the artistic works are not intended for everyday life, and yet they offer a broader perspective of what is possible. The exhibition is particularly worthwhile because of the “experimental”, the “play with colors and materials”. Awards "Masters in Form and Color" also include a design competition. The Baden-Württemberg master schools (Karlsruhe, Lahr, Mosbach, Reutlingen, Ulm and the three master schools in Stuttgart) select the works for the exhibition as a first step. A nationwide jury awards the prizes. The best works are awarded with sponsorship prizes from the companies Baumit, Brillux, Caparol, MEGA and Sto. Due to the surprising closure of Fema, the price previously awarded by the Fema company was replaced by a price from the "Eurokreis Maler". The European Circle of Painters, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, is an independent association of painters from Switzerland, France and Germany who would like to promote closer cooperation with their friendship. Baumit presented an award to Christian Fien-Feuerstein (Karlsruhe master school) for the design of a photo studio. His detailed imitation of concrete with formwork impressions and a rust technique that was brought to life by rivets showed his high level of craftsmanship. Florian Herter (Stuttgart) worked on the design of a showroom for the furniture designer Walter Knoll. He also used a concrete imitation, but modified it strongly and refined it with silver wax and the lettering of the designer. A gold shimmering structure technique with crocodile skin pattern also exudes exclusivity. Herter demonstrated how noble a black surface can look with high-gloss lacquered plate segments that reminded of dried, cracked earth, but contradicted by their noble sheen. Brillux was also impressed by this examination work and awarded it an award. Rust optics In addition to concrete rails, rust techniques are popular this year. Dominik Beller (Karlsruhe) also used a rust technique to design a vinotheque in addition to clay plaster, glaze and varnish. His rather calm interpretation of rust is only enlivened by a few spatulas, appears almost soft. Beller's work has been recognized by Caparol. The Eurokreis appreciated the exhibition stand of the Stuttgart School of Color and Design, which was shown at the "Color - Finishing and Facade (FAF)" in spring 2016. The school's desire was to present material experiments. Alexander Neumaier implemented these in a very appealing way. For example, the young master sprayed red-colored cement-based renovation filler with a check bag using a check pattern, sanded the mass flat after drying and filled the cavities with black-colored material. After repeated surface grinding, the surface was oiled, which gave it even more color intensity. Furthermore, Neumaier experimented with glaze in an extremely high layer thickness, which was combed with the Maserboy, or sprinkled reflective beads in alkyd resin paint. So strange the ideas, the results impressed. The Eurokreis therefore honored Alexander Neumaier. A collage of old Vespa pictures, which were transferred into a vehicle paint using a process developed in-house and combined with metal panels in typical Vespa colors,Michael Schlegel (Stuttgart) also received an award. MEGA appreciated this innovative technology as well as the other design proposal from the freshly baked master for a Vespa shop. The master's examination work by Georg Fischer (Ulm) was distinguished by a special imitation of concrete. The latter had devoted himself to designing an information office for navigation technology. In addition to a world map that had been made using the smoothing technique and a glue that showed historical maps and was adorned with a compass rose, a concrete block attracted attention. Fischer had by no means selected a “normal” imitation of concrete, rather the block showed clear signs of corrosion, right down to the exposed, rusty reinforcement steel. The dilapidated character of the cube was increased by the spackled word "vintage". But other masterpieces also deserve an award. Ferdinand Weipert (Stuttgart), for example, had developed a coherent concept for an artist's exhibition space who works with metal wires. Of course, he took up the subject of metal. This is how gilded plate pieces were created, which showed a craquelé effect. In a geometric pattern, arranged on a black background, there was a noble wall design. Weipert continued the same pattern in a silver plate. He had applied a colorless effect material to it, which forms a crystal structure when it dries. Finally he painted over the plate black and washed the crystals, a negative structure remained. Lukas Wagner and Manuel Marciano (both Stuttgart) had developed design suggestions for exhibition rooms. Wagner was also about metals. He combined, each arranged in a golden ratio, a red lime plastering technique, which was refined with gold soap, with trimmed real copper or a black lime troweling technique with a likewise trowelled aluminum surface. In another design technique, he partially covered impact aluminum with impact brass, which was distributed in small accumulations on the surface. Marciano provided ideas for the modern redesign of a painter's showroom. Here, for example, rust drains were found on a metal surface or a mineral filler, which had been applied to an adhesive base in strip form. Kept simple in white,this technique develops an interesting play of light and shadow. Patrick Schmid (Stuttgart) impressively demonstrated that even for a construction equipment manufacturer, noble wall designs can be developed with reference to the product. He presented various techniques that showed stylized tire marks from the construction equipment as a pattern. An aluminum plate in which various profiles were ground one above the other was particularly successful. Craquelé effect Rather reserved, but no less demanding, Bianca Sowa (Stuttgart) designed an art and antiques shop in Stuttgart. In keeping with the goods offered, the techniques should also have a historical appearance. Sowa opted for a porcelain interpretation. To do this, she structured a plaster in a strip shape using a spoon,applied several layers of casein paint and polished them up. She highlighted individual strips with gilding. She brushed acrylic paint in a checkerboard pattern onto a paper wallpaper covered with water-based tear lacquer. The subtle craquelé effect that resulted on the wallpaper had an artistic effect and gave the surface an antique look. The design concept for a club in Ravensburg, on the other hand, was to convey depth and garish and extremely striking. Kevin Klein (Stuttgart) solved this customer request with a back glass technology in shrill orange and black. The superimposed geometric pattern, which was located both on the acrylic glass plate mounted at a distance and on the wall surface underneath, dissolved the room level and thereby conveyed depth. In addition to the experimental techniques, numerous traditional painting techniques, such as stone or wood imitations, could also be seen in Karlsruhe. So there should have been an “eye candy” for each of the approximately 5000 visitors to the exhibition.
