About The Artwork

THE POEM THAT TOOK THE PLACE OF A SUNRISE II from my series "Innocence" 150 (w) x 120 (h) x 2 cm 59,1 (w) x 47,24 (h) x 0,79 inches acrylic and oil on canvas 2016 In the early morning Words won't come In the wee hours of the morning All words are wandering In the first light of day Words are still no words – silent And in the rise of the morning Sun aspirates a poem. * * In other words: "In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer." Albert Camus (1913 - 1960) * * A word can change the world, one poem can change the sunrise - this painting is from my current series "Innocence" that deals with light. Brightness as a symbol that stands for the beginning, the morning, the pureness and birth, the ease and light-heartedness. In other words: innocence (before the day will corrupt it). And this innocence is beautiful, perfect, immortal. This innocence is emotional, it touches and is a promise. Mostly the series works with very different yellow and red colours. We are talking about affirmative painting as a stark contrast to the (daily) madness and confusions around us. The paintings of the series are my answer to all the negative events in this world and it correlates with my credo from the Bible: be hot, be cold but never be lukewarm (Book of Revelation 3:16). We have to fight against the gloom before melancholia will drown us. We should offer resistance against the inner and outer debris fields – we can be warriors of light (within the meaning of Paulo Coelho) and we are able to design our fate in an intensive and positive kind. We’re standing back to back and defending our well standpoints. We are making mistakes. But we are fighting... For more information about that painting series please have a look at my website www.7and1lives.de and check the menu item "painting/series/series innocence". * * * * This artwork was featured by Saatchi Art and selected for the 'Saatchi Art - The Other Art Fair Los Angeles' Online Studio' collection ORIGINALS FOR USD 5000+ (April 2020). * * * * This piece is a true LARGE-SIZED PAINTING. For a large-scale, aesthetic and colourful impression on your wall AND as my authentic and personal artwork with an artistic subsurface message. This painting is for sale as solitaire or as the center part of the triptych THE GENTLE ABSTRACTION OF LIGHT. I use exclusively oil and acrylic colours, canvas and wooden frames in a professional museum quality. The painting wears my signature on the front and is signed, entitled and dated on the backside. Deliberately the sides (about 2 cm wide) are not part of the painting and show the black painted canvas (beautiful contrast). The painting is ready to hang (on the backside: high-quality iron plates with metal inserts and nylon rope for gallery use), unframed and doesn’t need a frame or any additional surface treatment. The piece will be safely shipped in a custom wooden crate. It will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and a cover letter and my poem (written for this painting) as an additional part of the artwork. Please note: In context pictures are not necessarily to scale and are for illustrative purposes only. If you have any questions about this painting or any other piece, feel free to contact me and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks so much for taking an interest in my work. Warm wishes, Christian

CHRISTIAN BAHR has been a passionate, profound German painter and experienced draftsman for over 35 years, selling his works worldwide. His works can currently be found in private collections and public spaces in the US, Mexico, Canada, UK, China, Thailand, Australia, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Malta, Sweden, Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. His atmospheric large paintings are poetry and artistic struggle at the same time. They capture both harmony and conflict, overall reflecting a strong aesthetic. He has participated in many national and international exhibitions. What he believes in: ........................................................................... “Not everything is art. But art is everything and everything breathes art in one way or another. Art is the true beauty of mankind.” ........................................................................... “I work in my studio nearby the big German coastal city of Hamburg, on the North sea. I’m a seeker as a painter, in search of answers. The single human takes center stage. I work constantly, with great passion and discipline on my further artistic way. I have a clear, strong painting philosophy. And I deal with philosophical, mythological as well as with historical subjects in my works.” ........................................................................... “I go my own way in my paintings. I find the source for my inspiration in me. Spontaneous action is the key, my preferred method. I work intuitively and in most cases without previous sketches, because I do not need a creative distance, I only reduce the view of our surroundings. Added value and clarity through abstraction. It must be rough, original, melancholic, dark, and yet at the same time bright, poetic, clear and full of hope. No maybe, no lukewarm. Every moment counts. That's exactly how I paint." ........................................................................... “Painting is a beauty, soul and passion, but sometimes fighting. A fight with myself, an endless struggle for colors and motif in my own conversation, as a rough internal dialogue. There are these days and nights, when I fight for every single brushstroke, when I question every color scheme. But it is good it is not always easy. Because each artistic battle is worthwhile and shows that I am - as an artist - still alive, breathing and developing.“ ...........................................................................
