Eberhard Marx tells us stories and shares lived fantasies and lays them out in his pictures with the touch of a master.
The past meets the future and is transformed into a train of thought that leads us to truths that are embedded in an often distorted environment.
What is the cat doing on the roof between all those drainpipes? How did that tree get into the car wreck? What or who will be suspended from the rope next to it?
No questions are resolved here, it‘s left up to the viewer to seek out and discover answers.
The artist leads us into a world that appears to only belong to him and that he releases for contemplation to those who understand them and wish to share them with him.
He has genuinely learnt his trade, the drawing and painting techniques have been refined to the extent that is essential for his Fantastical Style of Painting. This enables us to enjoy figurative seeing without distraction.
If we allow ourselves to take a step into the unknown and to create Visionaries and the Fantastic, we will discover, experience and perceive much that is new in the art of Eberhard Marx.
