The light of trees

by peter gartmann and sabina roth

 

Peter Gartmann and Sabina Roth have created black-and-white and monochromatic paintings of trees, frail and fragile –

they appear like delicate, spatial objects, spherical tree creatures –

full of lightness and complexity.

The trees become an abstraction, archaic and sacral –

symbolic of the conscious and subconscious, of the visible and invisible.

 

The tree represents the connection between heaven and earth –

as a symbol of the universe, as a connecting element in the cosmos.

The tree shining through, brought to life by the light –

in constant change and transformation, arising in a new image –

tree of life – a great mystery, full of miracles and secrets.

 

The tree images are the result of Peter Gartmann`s and Sabina Roth`s long-standing visual exploration of the subject of trees and woods – based on individual image series around the nature of trees.

„The trees are not essential to sustain this life on earth. –

They are essential to salvage the human soul.“

 

Joseph Beuys

wrapped trees – christo und jeanne-claude

 

 

die durchscheinenden lichtgestalten in den verhüllten bäumen – wrapped trees – von christo und jeanne-claude haben peter gartmann und sabina roth zur serie trees und tree sculptures inspiriert.

 

Ausgehend von den baumskultpuren von christo und jeanne-claude haben sie die beiden baumserien realisiert.

 

Die Baummonumente von christo und jeanne-claude mit den durscheinenden ästen haben grosse ähnlichkeiten mit den beiden kunstarbeiten von peter gartmann und sabina roth.
