By looking at my works the observer is supposed to learn something about me and my thinking and thus to communicate with me. I can express my feelings and thoughts much better and much more diverse through painting. Moreover, in my opinion, this way it is much easier to get the prolonged attention of your fellow human beings for a specific topic, as the observer doesn’t have to listen to you.
Elis Hoymann uses the means of photography to create images that bring to mind her focussing eye, her search for artistic structures, like the procedures which she uses to raise the representational to abstraction.
My work focusses on, refers to and, if it is successful, embodies ‘moments of meeting’. These moments, vital in their uniqueness, and creative in their potential, reflect a state of mind we all know. These are moments when we encounter something for the very first time.
With some fractional exceptions, the drawings and paintings are purely abstract. As any direct reference to the supposed reality has consequently become obsolete, it is almost impossible to interpret these works in a way that aims at critically commenting on our society or even ironically mirroring the stimuli of the media.
While animal portraits as a genre in painting already exist for a long time, the artist Katharina Schick is combining surreal pictorial worlds with the almost mundane motif of cows and in doing so creates surprising insights that do not match the expectations of the observer.
Hanjo Schmidt works with photographs without copying them. He does not force his craft to serve the motif and does not deny painting – for instance for the benefit of a supposed realism or even photo realism. For his works, he uses acrylic paint and simple flat brushes to apply the colour in rough and quick strokes.
Since about 2007, Marco Rietz has been working with mirror glass. In this period, he has developed an entirely individual method to create landscapes, portraits and abstract art as “mirror images”.
About the artist Andreas Oesch: His artworks are the expression of a consistent personal and artistic development, or rather, of his development. Andreas Oesch invites the observer to enter into his artistic world.
His entire artistic knowledge is self-taught and he has been artistically active since his youth. Whether he is making music, taking photographs or is painting. After a conversation with him, however, the question inevitably comes to mind, whether “philosopher” would not be a more appropriate name for him.
David Baur´s former fellow student, Matthias Reinholdt, who also shared a workshop with him, aptly describes his works: “In my role as external reviewer, I can only confirm with emphasis that David Baur is an artist who sabotages the collective craze of wanting to explain the world by means of his holistic-performative approach in a soothing manner.”
In her figurative oil paintings, Ursula Singer assembles figures and themes from European motif tradition. The Roman goddess Venus can be found next to Napoleon Bonaparte and a worker from the 1920s.
As an illustrator, she is trying to make stories, dreams and moods tangible. New techniques are tested and combined in a playful manner. Thus, for example, macro photographs, modelling clay and hand drawings become one.
In the abstract modern sculptures produced by Maritta Winter, the predominant form is round shapes that bring to mind the generosity of nature, the sensuality of a body and the vitality of dance. Tenderness and strength are expressed.
The Basel artist Christine Battaglia-Zumstein concerns herself with thoughts of becoming, blossoming and decline in her image cycle “it’s a flowersworld”.
Born on 26th September 1960 in Augsburg, lives and works in Munich. Has been painting, and above all, drawing, for as long as he has been able to think, and since 2001 as a “complete artist”.
Frankfurt artist Nicolaj Dudek is a virtuoso talent who works with a multitude of materials – charcoal, wax crayon, pencil, ink or watercolour on paper and punched card. And with a stapler gun on walls, plasterboard and wood.
Hannah Feigl, who was born in Lower Austria in 1966, studied at the University of Applied Arts under Professor Maria Lassnig and completed her diploma in 1995 under Professor Christian Ludwig Attersee. The central focus of her creative output is portraiture.
The stories that I tell with my pictures are entirely in the eye of the beholder, and are intended to stir the unconsciousness and awaken associations.
After her studies, she began to devote herself exclusively to painting and, since 2008, has been represented by the Galerie Amrei Heyne in Stuttgart.
He produced his own backgrounds and painted on driftwood, masonry boards and offcuts, in entire rooms, and on his own furniture and sculptures.
In his works Mike Prinz places figures precisely alongside and over one another in the same way as with collage, so that scenes that initially stand alone begin to interact.
Although works from the cycle appear in part to be abstract at first glance, the titles of the pictures contain moments of irony, cynicism, lyricism, poetry and absurdity.
From 1997 to 2002 she studied painting at the State Academy of Art and Design in Stuttgart under Professor Moritz Baumgartl and Professor Cordula Güdemann.
As an artist with a spray can, Helge Steinmann, a.k.a. the “Bomber”, quickly made a name for himself in Germany and beyond.
Tom Zilker’s passion is for photography and he lives and works in Munich. Alongside artistic photography, his main focus is on portraiture and photographing people.
