Uwe Hand: Painter

SKU: 9783735605771 Category:


Meticulously executed, colorful and sometimes collage-like in their relation of figure to ground, the paintings of German artist Uwe Hand (born 1952) depict landscapes, buildings and animals against vast, sometimes decorative backdrops that highlight the exact rendering of their main subject. Hand's painting is unique. His images open up vast spaces for the imagination… It almost seems as if elements of nature have been transformed into painting. A masterly use of countless layers, colours, pigments and even sand are applied, abrasively excavated, and rebuilt again until an image comes into being: abysmal in its surreal and dreamy motives, graceful in its rugged materiality. With inspiration ranging from the Baroque to the films of Hitchcock, Tarkovsky and David Lynch, Uwe Hand creates paintings so intriguing that one hardly wants to turn away.
