Artist's description:

120 (h) x 100 (w) x 2 cm
acrylic and oil on canvas

From beyond the horizon
Call my ships back to port.
Will you still remember me
At the last remaining light?

Both summer and winter
Be my pole, be my lodestar.
Will you still believe in me
At the dying of the light?

“Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”
Dylan Thomas (1914 – 1953)

AT THE DYING OF THE LIGHT is a true LARGE-SIZED PAINTING. For a large-scale, aesthetic and colorful impression on your wall AND as my authentic and personal artwork with an artistic subsurface message. This painting is the beautiful fruit of a long-term internal creative dialogue with the use and meaning of the colors Gold and Copper. I do love the famous use of these colors by Gustav Klimt and by medieval iconographers. My own contemporary interpretation (or maybe transfer) features dozens of color layers and gradients mixed with Gold, Copper and Earth-Colors. The surface of the painting is -- as a desired part of the creative process -- predominantly shiny and smooth but elsewhere rough and matt (please have a look at the meaningful photos of the painting). This painting is for sale as solitaire or as the left part of the triptych THE ICONOGRAPHY OF A FALLEN LOVE (ANNE BOLEYN).

I use exclusively oil and acrylic colors, canvas and wooden frames in a professional museum quality. The painting wears my signature on the front and is signed, entitled and dated on the backside. Deliberately the sides (about 2 cm wide) are not part of the painting and show the black painted canvas (nice contrast to the colors of the painting). The painting is ready to hang (on the backside: high-quality iron plates with metal inserts and nylon rope for gallery use), unframed and doesn’t need a frame or any additional surface treatment. The piece will be safely shipped in a custom wooden crate. It will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and a cover letter and my poem (written for this painting) as an additional part of the artwork.

Please note: In context pictures are not necessarily to scale and are for illustrative purposes only. If you have any questions about this painting or any other piece, feel free to contact me and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Thanks so much for taking an interest in my work.

Warm wishes,
