American artist John Zinsser refers to his painting as a "wide open dialogue", with the multifaceted exhibition scene of New York City supplying the resources for this painting-oriented discourse. Thus, since the early 1980s, Zinsser has been building up a list of reference persons. His "circles of influences" include friends, colleagues of different generations as well as role models. With them, he carries on a form of discourse and counter discourse, and they motivate him to conduct painterly monologues, even challenging him to an antithesis when necessary.

With the exhibition "Reason and Belonging: John Zinsser and Related Painters", the kunstgaleriebonn is showing a first, small selection from these "circles". Works by Rudolf de Crignis, Marcia Hafif, Joseph Marioni, Michael Toenges, and others provide an insight into the way Zinsser's art refers to and deals with these artists. The fundamental element that connects the works shown is their exploration of the pure materiality of paint and the essence of color.
