Carl-W. Röhrig - an artist to touch.
The painter of dreams, nature, fantasy - this is how one could describe his art, if there were not these thoughts and reflections, that creep into one’s mind while looking at his pictures.
The vulnerability of our planet, the thin layer of our so-called cultural landscapes, the beauty of what we long for, this is what the artist Carl-W. Röhrig in his Works repeatedly express. His pictures are so fleetingly beautiful and have a surprising intellectual depth.
Röhrig's painting techniques, the many details to discover, delight the audience again and again. A truly rare art that can be seen in Gallery ART 87.
Born in Munich in 1953, he began his career as an illustrator for German language magazines like Stern, Spiegel, and Geo. Many of his cover pictures are still remembered today. At the time when he illustrated environmental issues such as the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl, ocean pollution, and the worldwide dying forest, he developed his own Fantastic Naturalism style - a new form of painting in spite of all opposing streams of art - a painting against the Zeitgeist also known as “the defining spirit or mood of a particular period of history as shown by the ideas and beliefs of the time”
Let yourself be inspired by this truly unusual exhibition in Andermatt.
The artist will be show painting one of his works during the opening night in the gallery. You can almost look over his shoulder and speak with him about art and painting techniques ... a truly special opportunity!
In addition, two three-day painting seminars will be held, in which everyone is welcome, however, the courses are limited to a maximum of 8 participants.
