The Nature Of Things: Galerie Andres Thalmann, Paris, France

In this current exhibition in Paris, I am juxtaposing my tree paintings with my architecture paintings. One architecture painting relating to Palm Springs in summer and the other relating to Mies Van Der Rohe's Farnsworth House in both autumn and winter.

In my capacity as a gallery owner as well as a lawyer practicing in the world of the

arts, I have been active in the international art market for more than 27 years. The

Galerie Andres Thalmann, which I founded in Zurich in 2009, has built a reputation

for itself representing a number of established artists of both Swiss and international

pedigrees. Now it gives me great pleasure to announce the opening of our second

gallery in Paris, the veritable metropolis of the arts. In July 2023, Galerie Andres

Thalmann will open its doors at 70, Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, in the heart of

Paris’ historic fashion and arts district.

In this second location, Galerie Andres Thalmann will carry on with its Swiss

orientation, focusing on the works of artists known nationally and internationally.

However, the Paris exhibition programme will also be expanded in new artistic

directions, allowing the two galleries in Zurich and Paris to offer different and varied


To open Galerie Andres Thalmann in Paris, I am extremely pleased to present the

second solo exhibition by Eamon O‘Kane, entitled The Nature of Things. Eamon is an

artist whom the gallery has exhibited successfully at Art Paris for several years now,

helping him to build up a wide circle of collectors in France.

Among other subjects, many of Eamon’s works focus on houses designed by famous

architects, revealing an emotional character that emerges from their settings within

an atmospheric – sometimes fanciful – landscape. Both the theoretical and practical

aspects of his creative process are just as exciting and fascinating as the resulting

works themselves. Especially for the opening exhibition in Paris, Eamon created a

work showing the Grand Palais Éphémère, a building that, despite its temporary

character, has become an icon of the Parisian cityscape as well as of the art world.

My special thanks go to Eamon O‘Kane for collaborating with us on this momentous

occasion, and for his long friendship. I would also like to thank Isabelle Koper for her

wonderful and inspiring support in setting up the new gallery as well as the exhibition!

We are proud to become a part of this vibrant art metropolis, and we hope that on

your next visit to this famed „ville lumière,“ you will allow yourself the opportunity to

be enchanted by Eamon O‘Kane‘s fascinating works.
