Wolfgang Blanke

Wolfgang Blanke is a passionate advocate for experiencing the sensuality of materials. He is well known for working with raw materials like pigments and binders like oils, waxes, resins and glues instead of using industrially produced colours. In this way the artist finds new means of expressing his personality and moods directly. Many of his figurative paintings arise out of the intense and spontaneous observation of the moment, a feature which he has acquired among other things through his other passion – sailing and seafaring.

"I work with raw materials and produce my own paint. This allows me to use a huge variety of colours which all act different. With transparent layers I can both show the progress of painting itself and the thrilling contrast between the figures and the background.
Is there anything more striking and important in painting than to deal with the painting itself?
You feel these fascinating materials while you are in the dialogue of a painting process - you listen to it and it guides you."
(Wolfgang Blanke)
