VIEW IN MY ROOM
The German Lullaby and Chant „Abend ward bald kommt die Nacht“ was—sung b my mother—a warming light of my childhood, a source of safety and space. Thus my artistic project about this song was arranged as an empowering back reference to the basics of life and the early sources of my security as a painter and musician. But the artwork mirrors it’s own time and space. Night figures and structures escalate to a frenzy, pressing forward into a somehow resisting darkness. Like Einsteins train. Questions arising from the artwork’s advancement in the studio did rather intensify the dynamics of the pictorial elements—the ambivalent history of the song in the Germany of the 40th, the accelerating life-world around the studio itself, in this Winter of 2019/20. Night Train was finished on the eve of the first pandemic lockdown in march 2020. It changed my life.

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.
