Burkhard Riegels & Rike Riegels-Winsauer

„The pictures Burkhard Riegels has created over the past decades are allowed to tell stories. They are meant to create space for one’s own reflections. And they report on life and people. Pictures against visual ephemerality“
The radiance of Rike Riegels-Winsauer’s unique textile artworks unfolds both in her large formats and in enchanting miniatures. Through intensive study of textile techniques in all cultures of the world, she learned highly refined, often centuries-old techniques. An important station on her way was learning gold embroidery in the parament workshop of the Kaiserswerth monastery. All these skills lead her in the free realisation and in exciting material compositions to incomparable works of art, each one a precious, fascinating universe.

The ART TEMPTO Gallery exists because we like to share our joy of creating with others. In 2008, we combined our trades into an extraordinary joint project: The Goldsmiths. The art workshop-gallery. The photography studio. ART TEMPTO (in artistic licence of the Latin “attempto – I dare”) After ten successful years in Tübingen, we have arrived in the middle of Karlsruhe with our ART TEMPTO since 2019. We have created a wonderfully bright, light-flooded space at Durlacher Tor in our loft, an architecturally fascinating workshop building from the 19th century. An ideal space for our diverse art crafts. Working and living in the middle of a beautiful garden.Rike Riegels-Winsauer & Burkhard Riegels
