About The Artwork

A guitar string is woven through the paper and affixed with melted plastic, including special paints and foils. The theme is like the material used one of multiple items and categories to depict that many of us are confused and we don't know what we want: what religion, what style, seeking love, ... we just don't know. Life is a journey in search of our identity going through the different stages. Original: Size: approx. 25" x 35" inches (ca. 63,5 x 89 cm) Media: Mixed Media on Paper Year of Creation: 1981 Make an Offer! Condition notice: Artwork has some paper creases due to storage.

Dietmar Scherf (b. 1961) is an Austrian-born American artist. Since the late 70's he has evolved as an artist. The objective as an artist is to express my visual impressions. For the viewer and collector it is my intention to speak to their senses and emotions regarding memories, dreams and visions that they experienced. Often it's something beautiful or mystical or a feeling in their life that touches them deeply and which they may want to vividly remember providing an indescribable personal experience. ... >>> ... Dietmar Scherf is often playfully experimenting in an attempt to capture moments with reinterpreting dreams, visions and life experiences. ... >>> ... SOME INFLUENCES from various masters are undeniable. Growing up amidst the rich culture and history of Austria, especially when moving to Vienna in the early 80's, he was often confronted with the works by Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Gustav Klimt, Wolfgang Hutter, Rudolf Hausner and other artists. Brief encounters with artists like Alfred Hrdlicka and Friedensreich Hundertwasser were inspiring to the young Scherf. Aside from the Austrian artists he enjoyed the artworks from Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Vincent Van Gogh (of which a copy of one painting hung in his parents' living room), Claude Monet and others. In recent years, Scherf has found the works of Gerhard Richter very interesting. ... >>> ... Scherf has developed his own technique and voice for paintings as well as in art photography, which makes his artworks easily recognizable. To prepare the surface of a painting, it is usually "baptized" with fire as in melting candle wax onto the canvas. Overall, Scherf's artworks are truly a celebration of God's wonderful creation and His creativity. Since the 90's, art collectors from around the world, frequently from Europe, Russia, and the U.S., have acquired Scherf artworks for their private and some corporate collections. ... >>> ... AN ART COLLECTOR HAD THIS TO SAY about his recent purchase of a Dietmar Scherf artwork: "Really great! I'm literally speechless! The artwork is more than overwhelming + wonderful + a real masterpiece! I'm sure you know how it is with expectations in life. Despite my great anticipation to receive this artwork it far exceeded all of my expectations." ... >>> ... All images © Copyright by Dietmar Scherf.
