Carsten Westphal - Painting
The rough and fine structures of the dried-out, torn soil, the burst coarse gravel, the sand dunes that the winds have formed, all this draws the artist Carsten Westphal to the deserts. He mixes the materials, which he finds there, the salt, the sand, the soil and the dust pigments, with colour pigments and bonding agents and applies them onto the canvas using trowels and brushes. Thus, he creates telluric landscapes, mirror images of the elementary powers, which created these landscapes, structure paintings, which can only develop like this in the deserts.
Fancher Brinkmann - Painting
R. Fancher Brinkmann’s paintings widely relinquish shape and form, leaving impalpable surfaces and fields that work entirely through the impact of their color.Colors provoke sensations and feelings in every person, whether consciously or subconsciously. "Every person sees something different in my paintings. That is the wonder of abstract art.”
Bernhard Edmaier - Photography
For more than 25 years, the photographer Bernhard Edmaier has been very deeply dedicated to photographing the surface of our planet – the forces of Nature which form the Earth. His seemingly abstract aerial images, in which high quality photography and science unite, have caused international sensation and have been received with great excitement by international audiences.
Christoph Jacob - Sculpture
Christoph Jakob lets the stone tell its story, but listening is not a contemplative process but hard back-breaking work. But the ability to listen leads to the artist not imposing his design ideas on the stone, but allowing them to develop in sensitive correspondence with the natural conditions of the material, the design concept developing in harmony with the properties of the stone.

Jana Dettmer - Painting
Jana Dettmer's strength is the abstract painterly expression. In addition to the traditional tool of the brush, the artist also uses spatulas and squeegees. The resulting broad structures of the colors create fascinating landscapes, the random mixing of colors and the smoothing of the material create images of touching abstraction. Each painting becomes an experiment; a tangible visual poetry.
Alfred Karl Maria Kreutzberg - Painting
Being an artist with a highly recognisable expression, Alfred has lived with Parkinson's disease for more than 28 years, this makes his work special. His motto: Every day celebrates the birth of a new image, rewarded by the joy and feelings of the viewer when he recognizes the soul of this image.
Günter Zörer - Photography
For Günter Zöhrer, photography is a path towards himself. It is like a meditation that does not need to be taught to anyone, because through the observation of nature a decelerating effect occurs. Through the devotion to nature, during a special moment, every "loud" and "everyday" thought disappears. It becomes quiet in the body and the person is automatically in the now. Günter Zöhrer's landscape photos show the incredible beauty of nature on this earth.
Markus Schürmeyer - Sculpturs
Markus Schürmeyer finds the artistic challenge he is looking for in stone as a working material. The hardness of stone offers the artist resistance; as a material, it can only be extracted and transformed through active destruction. In contrast to this is the formal principle of the bowl. As a vessel form, the bowl is receptive and passive. It absorbs, preserves, offers space and protection, is open. His works impress through artistic design and through their grace.
Marijke In den Bosch - Sculpturs
Marijke In den Bosch works clay with different oxides and bodystains. By heating the mold to different temperatures, surprising results are created; the ceramic sculptures thus get a special radiance. The most important inspiration for Marijke are the people who always give her new energy to experiment further, but she does not strive for anatomical correctness in her works.
