Photographer and fellow artist Jo Fischer is a master of documenting people and life, and by far one of our most admired visiual storytellers around our campfire here at The Ranch aka The Gallery. There are two new series online on his website that he brought back from his many travels: "Redneck Nation" and "Kiruna". Find out more by clicking on the links or the images.
In case you missed it: here's the full video from the clubkinder artist talk with heliumcowboy founder and artist Jörg Heikhaus aka Alex Diamond, which was held on January 22 at our gallery. Jörg was interviewed by Jannes Vahl, founder of the social organisation clubkinder e.V., which supports social projects in Hamburg. Jörg donated one of his trademark Alex Diamond-photodrawings (see here), which was auctioned for the benefit of Sport ohne Grenzen e.V., a youth basketball project in Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg.
Below: 2nd part of the artist talk with the questions from our visitors.

We cordially invite you to the second clubkinder Artist Talk at heliumcowboy on January, 22 | 7 pm. This time Hamburg based artist Jörg Heikhaus aka Alex Diamond will talk about himself and his artwork. As a kind of veteran of the Hamburg art scene, he will share his oberservations and assessments of the current situation of art and the art market in Hamburg. And hopefully it will lead this evening to insightful discourses.
About Alex Diamond:
Alex Diamond was initiated as a stand-alone art project by Jörg Heikhaus in 2004. Although it has outlived its original intent, it has become his stage name as an artist.
Essentially being a determined and straightforward storyteller, most of his artwork can be seen as an exploration of contemporary culture and its recurring social recognition patterns, with strong references to popular content and aesthetics.
Known for skillfully employing a vast variety of different techniques and crafts over the years, the majority of his oeuvre today consists of his distinctive trademark woodwork: multi-layered, meticulously and highly detailed sculptural woodcuts, blended with diverse painting and pigmenting styles.
The non-profit association clubkinder is an important institution for Hamburg. They raise funds for social projects and they do it in their own way and with what they do best : culture and media.
As 2015 is coming to an end, we would like to thank you for an amazing year full of interesting projects, awesome people, great art and much fun.
We are very grateful for your interest and ongoing support and we are curious what 2016 is keeping in store for us.
So, we wish you all a relaxing X-mas holiday season, a great New Year’s Eve and of course a wonderful new year which will hopefully bring us all lots of luck, health, success and love.
Looking forward to see you in 2016!
Our office is closed from 25th December until 4th of January.
