Merry Christmas 2019

Merry Christmas to all my followers. May the New Year bring lasting health and happiness.

Following Brexit 2020 may be the last time for me to be able to ship my paintings to the UK without having to worry about customs regulations. Although a majority voted for parties opposed to Brexit the first past the post system led to a parliamentary majority of a party in favour of Brexit.

Art has always been on the side of progress and has hardly ever wanted to take a step backwards. That is why I shall continue to employ my paintings as a means of communication to tell new stories based on the traditional values in art making it easy to understand for everybody.

Charles Harris on Realist Art

In this brief video professor Charles Harris gives us his views on realist art. You might argue photography and film can document life better than a painting. They are art forms in their own right. Yet realist paintings capture reality in a different way. They aim to project the artist´s interpretation of what he sees is important in a portrait or a landscape or even a still life. Furthermore paintings are unique unlike photographs which can be reproduced as many times as you like.

Let us revive the skills artists have developed over centuries and make use of them to bring stunning new works to the 21st century.

Charles Harris is a member of AERA the Association Embracing Realist Art.

Christmas Exhibition at a Shopping Centre

Our NAROMA Art Club exhibition at a shopping centre in a nearby town has been going since September now. The photos give you an impression of the show. The two 4m wide shop windows give visitors a view of more than 80 paintings large and small. There are acrylics and oils as well as icons painted on gold leaf.

Doors open on Saturdays with club members taking turns to man the shop and paint live in front of visitors. People keep coming in to take a closer look and talk to the artists. This Saturday and the next it will be my turn again to demonstrate the techniques of the old masters.

Every month the international group of artists AERA present a member on German TV.

Today I want to present a production about the British artist Alan Kingwell who specializes in oils.

We are looking forward to your comments or you may prefer just to click on the LIKE button below.

In my series of films on my slot on a German tv channel I present artists belonging to AERA the Association Embracing Realist Art. The films are being broadcast several times a month. Members have their work put in front of a wide audience. German subtitles are added where necessary to make it accessible to viewers who are less fluent in English. This one happens to be in German but the images are almost self explanatory. The productions are not only shown on the German TV channel several times over but they have also been entered into the station´s free public media library.

Furthermore Zattoo offer a live stream for subscribers in Europe. You can register for free. It will give you access to 89 tv channels. One of them is NRWision which features our AERA programmes several times a month.
