Wolfgang Müller

Wolfgang Müller begins with a certain idea, which then expands and concretizes in the course of a longer, sometimes over years extending creative process. He places the human being in the center of a cosmos, where he paints inner and outer worlds in a very own surreal context.

Stillstand - Oil on canvas 100 x 100 cm

The artist Wolfgang Müller, who started painting in his early years, and whose painterly education is based on self-study, was born in 1963 in Büchen. For a long time, he also worked independently as a cabinet maker. Since 2004, he and his wife have been running the post office in Büchen with a shop for writing and toys. There is also a gallery where he also exhibits his paintings.

Q. Wang

"As the famous French film producer Jean-Luc Godard said, It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to. Q. Wang has taken me further into the appreciation of my surroundings, people, and love." - Gary Sorkin

Overlook - Oil on canvas 18 x 24 in.

Chinese Artist, Q. Wang moved to America in 1995 to work as a computer Engineer/Programmer. In 2006 he attended the

West Los Angeles College to study Oil Painting and in 2011 a collection of his paintings "Spirit" was published.

Q. Wang’s painting style is entirely new and unique.  His artworks were reported in more than 10 countries, in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Italian, and Russian. Q. Wang developed his painting style -- "freeism" by using free colors, free shapes, and free strokes to do his artworks. The result is a free atmosphere and an imaginative space.

" Generally speaking, before Manet, people all try to paint alike, after Manet, people tried to paint differently. It's a broken process. Monet broke the brush, Van Gogh broken the plane, Matisse broken the colors, Miro broken Shapes, Picasso broken the construction, Abstraction broken the object. Before Van Gogh, people all painted what they saw, and let the viewers see what they painted. Since Van Gogh, people began to paint what they thought, and let the viewers think what they painted."

Q. Wang paints the spirits, something you can not see and you can not think, you can only feel it by heart. His paintings have no details but have characters. Each of his painting is different from others. Q. Wang's painting is a combination of contemporary art with Chinese culture.

“Art is a mediator of the unspeakable” - J. W. von Goethe

Genesis - Fotopaper 99 x 71cm - 6000 CHF

"I get my inspiration from my subconscious, very often I meditate bevor I start to paint.

A typical feature of these meditative times are the faces which appear during the painting process and sometimes merge into one another. Since early childhood, I was accompanied by my father who was an academic artist. The painting process crystallized in my own style and today I can confirm that my Art Style and especially painting medium are totally unique in the Art scene.

The need to express myself artistically gives me the opportunity to let go and let my feelings run free.

My artwork emerges from many different ways of expression.

My abstract paintings are reflections of my emotional experiences and my mood in the very moment of artistic creation. While examining my paintings I feel as if more and more resonances emerge. When I practice such intuitive art of painting I experience a kind of encounter with my self and many paintings are created out of this emotion. If you find my pictures attractive or if you feel touched and inspired by them, then you are close to me."

Born in FYROM (Macedonia) and living in Switzerland, Makeksi is an artist with a very unique technique perfected over the years to capture what he is yearning to express. Discover his beautiful works display bold color, fluid shape and beautiful line work.

"I always loved painting, to work with colors and different materials. When I begin to paint, I do not know what I am going to paint. It's like a natural process. My personal need for harmony controls my work, and as well it inspires me."

Arabesque - Painting 55 x 55 cm sold

"My entire life I have loved arts and music. I decided to study Architecture, a similar profession, but not as similar as I thought. I never really ceased to paint, to handle with colors.  In 2015 I began to express myself while painting. This was an entirely new experience. First I started to work with gypsum, a wonderful material. Later with all kinds of colors, varnish and sometimes with founds from nature.  At a certain time, I began to paint those mandala-like pictures. I do not know where they come from. I paint - without thinking about it - without making a concept before. It is a kind of a "marvelous relaxation" - coming from my inside.

At first, when I began to paint those pictures, I ask myself, where are they coming from. I do not know it, and after a while, I do not ask myself about it. I accepted it. In 2017 I began to publish my works, and a few months later, in November 2017 I had my first exhibition in Italy. This was incredible. As a matter of fact, I would say: painting is one of the great experiences of my life, it`s a part of me."

"My influence as an abstract expressionist artist is continually impacted by my life's journey. I identify my own philosophy with Kandinsky's quote concerning the "inner necessity"; the very reason that inspires me to engage in the creative process."

Sunrise Springs - Oil on canvas 55 x 65 in. - $4,000

"My influence as an abstract expressionist artist is continually impacted by my life's journey. Teaching art as a part of that journey was significant as I researched many artists in order to be prepared to teach. This research simultaneously affected my own stylistic decisions as I finalized my graduate level education.

My artwork continues to evolve through the lens of my emotional and intellectual response to life's experiences. The product is a reflection of the enmeshment of inner world experiences, the soul that holds all the intangible spiritual values and outer world influence, a broad spectrum; meaning, nature, people, and literature. 

What I do in my studio is a daily process I call a “vital creative activity.”  It stems from what Kandinsky said is an “inner necessity”.  My work is 2-D on canvas or paper.  Sometimes I use mixed media to communicate a particular theme. I use acrylic and oil, and often I combine these materials. Because I am inspired by the colors of nature, my work is colorful. I would like to quote Helen Frankenthaler who said “it is a combined conscious and subconscious effort “ and I agree that often it can be spontaneous.

   I would like the viewer to engage in my art and take away from whatever they feel it communicates to them.

After teaching for over 30 years I have learned that knowledge impedes progress and progress comes through hard work and consistency. It is always exciting to see what the next painting will be. Therefore, I am always expecting the unexpected to unfold in my work; I embrace the future for its mysterious unknown path that keeps me focused and challenges my creative options."

"How can I describe my work? Painting is a string of words: fear, cowardice, courage, talent, agony, and ecstasy. Painting has something erotic in the way that the colors love each other or hate each other."
