About Dietmar Scherf
Dietmar Scherf (b. 1961) is an Austrian-born American artist. Since the late 70's he has evolved step by step as an artist. Scherf is often experimenting and reinterpreting some influences from various masters with his own unique approach, technique and voice that he developed throughout his life. Growing up in culture-rich Austria, especially when moving to Vienna in the early 80's he was often confronted with the works by Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Gustav Klimt, Wolfgang Hutter, Rudolf Hausner and other artists. Brief encounters with artists Alfred Hrdlicka and Friedensreich Hundertwasser left a memorable impression on him and were inspiring. Aside from the Austrian artists he enjoyed the artworks from Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso and old masters such as Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet and others. In recent years, Scherf has found the works of Gerhard Richter to be very interesting. ... >>> ... Scherf has developed his own technique and voice for paintings as well as photographs, which makes his artworks easily recognizable, especially regarding some unique details only found in works. To prepare the surface of a painting, it is usually "baptized" with fire as in melting candle wax unto the canvas. Overall, Scherf's artworks are truly a celebration of God's wonderful creation and His creativity. Since the 90's, art collectors from around the world, often from Europe, Russia, the U.S., have acquired Scherf artworks for their private collections, although a number of his artworks are on display in public places, e.g. foyers and offices of corporations. ... >>> ...
