We cordially invite you and your friends to the opening with the artist on Thursday, May 19, 2022 at 6 p.m.

Wieland Payer, Blue Fall,  2020, Pastell, 190 x 300 cm
Wieland Payer demonstrates graphic virtuosity and has a special feeling for fascinating themes. His landscapes and still lifes are largely bare of people, but covered with mysterious phenomena. Do they come from fiction, descriptions of voyages of discovery or simply artistic imagination? Payer weaves representational, abstract and metaphysical elements into something new. His ideal images show visions of another world. His objects give the impression that it is already present.

Their unusual appearance corresponds to the fantastic character of the works: Wieland Payer works with pastel painting and presents this technique in new splendour. He succeeds in doing this through their unusual application to the large format, their brilliant mastery and careful further development.

Wieland Payer (*1981 in Erfurt) lives and works in Dresden. He studied at the Kunsthochschule Burg Giebichenstein Halle (diploma, 2009), the Accademia di Belle Arti Rome (Erasmus scholarship) and at the Royal College of Art in London (scholarship from the Studienstiftung and the DAAD, Master, 2011). Works by the young artist are in renowned public collections.
