until 31.10. | #2875ARTatBerlin | Galerie Eigenheim shows from 3rd October 2020 at the salon of the gallery the solo show Ill Skys with paintings by the artist Lars Wild.
Ille Himmels – Lars Wild’s “Ill Skys” shows dystopian landscapes and bittersweet portraits created last year. The motifs are not based on a model but, freely sprung from the artist’s spirit, the use of colour, whether oil, acrylic or lacquer, is unconventional. The respective material is mainly applied and every little graphic intervention by scratching, wiping and smearing becomes an element that shapes the picture. The extremely fine brush stroke simulates a water surface, the soft, matt colour gradients worked into the paper create voluminous cloud formations. The monochrome, overall very reduced colour palette is broken up mainly by the colourfulness of the background. At the same time, references to the naturalistic painting of the Romantic period are unmistakable. His portraits, sometimes anatomically perfect, sometimes grimacingly distorted, are familiar in a disturbing way, but they tend to be abysmal due to shadows cleverly placed in the corners of the mouth or eye sockets.
Lars Wild was born in Gotha in 1981, studied fine arts at the Bauhaus University Weimar and has been an artist of EIGENHEIM Weimar/Berlin since 2007. Lars Wild lives and works in Gotha.
