Marius and HIs Painting

After the first spontaneous foto shoot, thank god, I could finish one painting of Marius in my last long painting period. Marius  sits in front of the piece taking the same pose. Now it is your turn to find out the differences between the original and the painting in case there are any!

A very early work – 2007 – when I used to work on different materials. I still love it and I just found it in my storage. A translation of the title would be something like “Attila curtsies really phat.”

It is a mixed media work on wood, 15x40x2cm and the price is 240 €.

“Ein Stück Schwarzwälder, bitte!” – A classical order in an old German cafe! It is a wonderful torte, with cherries, cream and “cherry water”. Aaaah I love it!

If it comes to food, it is so amazing to arrange it, work with light and background colors, create a special and specific atmosphere and take fotos! Perfect!

But to paint food is so extremely difficult, because mostly  you just have no form. Think of a Risotto, Spaghetti Bolognese, a Tiramisu or a pumpkin soup. If you are extremely exact and realistic in your style, then it works very well, though it is still a challenge. But then you are also very close to a foto.

So the other way would be to find food, that has a form, like a burger, whole pieces of meat, bread or cakes. So in this piece I decided to paint a piece of Schwarzwälder Torte.

I had a form but I could also play around in a more experimental way. And then it is 200×150 cm, a huge not eatable piece. I am wondering how you feel sitting close to it, if you really see what it is, or you you look at it sitting a bit more far away! What do you think.

By the way if this piece is too big, it is also available as a print on vat paper, signed and limited on 12 pieces in 2 sizes.

30×40 cm (+ 1 cm white edge around) – 90 €

60×81 cm (+ 1 cm white edge around) – 240 €

 

And here are the other ones of this series. Enjoy and have a happy day!

 

 

You can’t do always and only the big sizes, the huge paintings, the overwhelming enormous stuff, sometimes you need the silent little moments, just with a pen and a small piece of paper, the pure moments, when you just are who you are and just do what you do.

Three heads on old playing cards – each 49 €

Two versions of one theme – sometimes you are inspired by a theme or a figure  in such a great und intense way, that you can not stop to try different versions. Often I feel so extremely old-fashioned that the old old muse is my main search to paint, but … it is.

Both pieces are 70×70 cm – acrylic and mixed media on canvas – the price of one is 1.300 €

 

Rosi 1 und Rosi 2 – Zwei weidende Kühe inmitten eines Universums mit gekugelten Rosen und weißen fliegenden Bällen. Aber sie wundern sich nie. Sie grasen einfach weiter und immerzu!

Rosi 1 and Rosi 2 – Two pasturing cows in the midst of an universe of rolled roses and white flying balls. They never marvel. They continue grazing and never stop.

Each piece is 70×70 cm – mixed media on canvas – 1.300 €

SING TO BE FREE

New works by Stephan Geisler

 

Eine wunderbare Zeit der Malerei liegt hinter mir. Ich habe einfach mal wieder nur gemalt, den ganzen Sommer lang bei den unglaublichsten und sommerlichsten Temperaturen.

A wonderful time of just painting is finished. It was an amazing summer with the most incredible and most estival temperatures and I just painted painted painted. So great!

Dabei ging es um Menschen, die singen und in jedem Moment des Gesangs sichtbar und ehrlich ihre Emotionalität leben. Und es ging um Freiheit. Bilder ohne Motive, sondern nur emotional ausgelebt und es ging um eine Mischung aus Beidem.

I painted people, people who sing, people who live in every moment of their singing their emotions in such a pure and honest way. And I painted free or … freedom, paintings without motives, just painted the own feelings. And I painted a mixture of both.

Diese Arbeiten sind jetzt in einer Ausstellung in meinem Atelier in Bochum zu sehen.

The results of this wonderful time are now exhibited in my studio in Bochum.

 

Seien Sie herzlich in meinem Atelier willkommen – Be welcome in my studio

vom 23.-26. August – Do bis So und vom 30. Aug bis 01. Sept – Do bis Sa

Öffnungszeiten – Opening Hours

Donnerstag bis Samstag jeweils von 16-21 Uhr – Sonntag von 14-18 Uhr

Atelier Stephan Geisler – Rottstraße 21 – 44793 Bochum

 

Übrigens nach der Ausstellung verschicke ich auf Wunsch gerne einen Online Katalog mit den Bildern der Ausstellung (natürlich gratis), ein Portfolio aller Bilder der Ausstellung. Für viele ist Bochum einfach zu weit oder die Zeit gibt es nicht her. Da ist so ein Katalog eine gute Alternative.

By the way after the exhibition I send via mail a catalogue of the exhibition, a portfolio with all the paintings, to everybody, who could not find time to come or who wants to a have a closer view onto the paintings.

Again I am in a wonderful work flow. I wake up around five in the morning, take 5 steps down to my studio, activate my coffee-machine to drink my first coffee, switch the light on, have a look at all my works in process and nip my first coffee ……. aaaaaaah

“view from above” – 70c70 cm – acrylic and chalk on canvas 1.200 €

 

Then I start to paint. My little dogs, the Italian greyhounds Lupo and Cooper wake up around half past six, they jump out of the bed, come to me to join me and to get their first cuddle session of the day. Then we have our first looooong walk of the day in the Westpark. When we are back they get their food and I continue painting.
