About The Artwork

Being a pianist myself, encountering the silent film "The Hands of Orlac“ was an inspiration for a series of monochrome drawings and paintings about metaphors for piano playing and using one’s hands in general. The project touches the relation between body and mind, the estrangement from parts of the body, and also the feeling of a part of oneself standing in for the whole. Hands Like a River is a light drawing with a speaking title. To discover the world evolving from it I would leave to the valued beholder. I traditionally use wet bonding tape to fix and stretch my large-sized drawings to the drawing board. Cutting the ready artwork off leaves a protective rim of about 2 cm around the image area. By this it comes a little bigger than specified. For the use with a passe-partout this allows to show the full image, for other ways of presenting you are free to take it off—or see it as an integral part of the beautiful work.

Christian Kabuß is an internationally established German artist and musician. He studied Medicine at the University of Rostock, then went on to Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weißensee, Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia and Moholy-Nagy University of Arts and Design Budapest to practice Fine Art. The artistic language within his paintings is deeply linked to a phenomenological approach to bodiliness, the freedom of subconscious artistic creation, and the theoretical and practical considerations of Design. Kabuß has exhibited in Germany and abroad. His works are present in regional, national and international collections. It is his aim to work as honest as possible, and he tends towards imagery, which is embedded in Lebenswelt, and sound. As a pianist, he performs small intimate concerts. His music is soft, sometimes freely improvised and portrays a sense of a parallel-world. Exhibitions in Italy, Sweden, Germany, China, and Japan.
