GRIMM proudly presents a solo exhibition by international acclaimed painter Norbert Schwontkowski.

Schwontkowksi shows a selection of his new works on paper as well as paintings, from January 17 to February 28, 2009.

Schwontkowski’s paintings are often figurative compositions with a strong poetic and melancholic undercurrent. The palet consists of muted tones and is build up from many layers of oil paint. Tiny human figures contrast with extensive landscapes for example or are overpowered by elements they cannot control. These at first glance simplistic scenes offer a world filled with strong emotion on the verge of dreams, imagination, and reality.
