Art Description

Painting: Oil and Acrylic on Canvas.

Triptych 2018
acrylic and oil on canvas
380 (w) x 150 (h) x 2 cm


I share the opinion of the famous Norwegian painter Edvard Munch (1863-1944), that paintings contain not only a creative message as single piece. You can look at them also in a major conceptional context. This triology TIME IS DANCING FROM SUNSET TO SUNRISE combines three new and essential of my works (2017/18) from aesthetic standpoints as well as with regard to contents.

One day from sunset to sunrise and from sunrise to sunset. One day and month, one season and year, one life. We are on a journey. There's no standstill. The clock is ticking. Carpe diem et memento mori. Time is dancing and fading. We all have a fate. But it's not of us to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. And so every day, every breath is precious and beyond retrieval. Scars remind us of our history. The small and the big stories of our life. We don't remember every face and place. But we feel what we were and what we are. Carpe diem et memento mori – remember that you will die and seize the day.

The triptych combines following works and should "read" from left to right:

acrylic and oil on canvas, 2018, 120 (w) x 150 (h) x 2 cm

This piece is a true LARGE-SIZED TRIOLOGY. For a large-scale, aesthetic and colourful impression on your wall AND as my authentic and personal artwork with an artistic subsurface message.

I use exclusively oil and acrylic colours, canvas and wooden frames in a professional museum quality. The three paintings wear my signature on the front and they are signed, entitled and dated on the backside. Deliberately the sides (about 2 cm wide) are not part of the paintings and show the black painted canvas (beautiful contrast). The paintings are ready to hang (on the backsides: high-quality iron plates with metal inserts and nylon rope for gallery use), unframed and don’t need a frame or any additional surface treatment. All paintings need a single hanging (no backside connections between the paintings). This triology contains 3 single paintings, each in acrylic and oil on canvas and with dimensions of 120 (w) x 150 (h) cm. I prefer a hanging distance each of 10 cm between the 3 single paintings. Complete dimensions of this artwork, including the hanging space between the single paintings: 380 (w) x 150 (h) x 2cm.

The piece (3 paintings) will be safely shipped in a custom wooden crate. It will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and a cover letter and my poems (written for the three paintings) 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 triptych 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,
