About The Artwork

"Vertical narrative" My picture series "Vertical narrative" consists of more than 50 individual canvases, each 50 x 50 cm (20 x 20 inches). Their main design feature are vertical stripes. The series ties in with the - also here shown - "The Rhaeto-Romanic Fairy Tale Teller", a reference to a historical occupational title in the Rhaeto-Romanic language area from the time when there was no written language there. Even there, stripes appeared occasionally as a means of design. Anyone who drives attentively through cultural landscapes will often see horizontal or vertical tracks or stripes. Vertical is the primary growth direction of nature. It is obvious to work with it creatively. From the calculated scientific experimental arrangement to the coincidence in the application of paint, the methods used can merge. Smooth paper, which is particularly suitable for this technique, serves as the image carrier, which is finally laminated onto canvas. My colour structure consists of the transparent basic colours yellow, magenta and cyan, plus black and white. The colours mix only on the picture carrier. The division of areas is based on Fibonacci's number system or is left to the individual feeling. All this applies to every single work of the series as well as to many other of my paintings. Therefore I do not formulate a separate text for each work. I ask for your understanding. Since the works are from a series, it is also possible to present several works in groups or side by side. They complement each other (see photos).

"Lehmann's images tell of the effect of the painting and the power of color, arising from the interaction of the primary colors of yellow, red and blue. In the process, his work has always to do with the chance. Such coincidences are something of a gift for a painter who is not afraid of the experiment, rather handles with different and unusual tools to gain new insights from the experimental experience. (...) By touching these themes Bernhard Lehmann seems to consider rather the sense of Lessing as a way to conquer new artistic dimensions, because to bring together the immediate of the gestural abstraction with the rational calculus of the concrete, actually means to combine the incompatible. These images show that this succeeds." (Dr. Ute Maasberg) "... Lehmann repeatedly stresses the process of drawing and thereby produces enigmatic works which simultaneously seem to conceal and to document the story of their own creation"(Prof. David Galloway, "art for expo", 2000. This words which the curator of the modern Iranian art collection wrote to my works are still valid today. New tools, such as strips and dots, meanwhile complement my repertoire and expand the design possibilities.
