“My painting is about memories of things I have experienced.The interpretation of several glances at a situation reflects a longer period: the moment.”
“Duties determine our everyday life. It takes time to deal with these. There is no time to lose. This leads to life speeding up. It is difficult to step away from this. Still, some situations make us pause. Situations that surprise us, that are sudden or unexpected or that might be created, like pouring a cup of tea. These moments last longer than just a moment. Impressions of experiences are often composed of several views. This takes time. The memory of these moments is the subject of my painting.”
German artist, Hans-Gerhard Meyer completed Fine Art studies in Visual Communication at University of Fine Arts, Kassel, Germany. He lives and works in Hamburg. His unique assemblages openhandedly offer the viewer the space to pause and contemplate not only what is depicted, but turn art into a moment of stillness and appreciation of what is.
