HOME TO THE GOLDEN SHORES I BELONG
triptych 2014
acrylic and oil on canvas
310 (w) x 120 (h) x 2 cm

3 LARGE-SIZED PAINTINGS
LARGE-SIZED TRIOLOGY AS TRIPTYCH

I share the opinion of the famous Norwegian painter Edvard Munch (1863-1944), that paintings contain not only a creative message as single piece. You can look at them also in a major conceptional context. This triology HOME TO THE GOLDEN SHORES I BELONG combines three essential of my works (2013/14) from aesthetic standpoints as well as with regard to contents.

Dream me home to the golden shores I belong... Life isn't always a bed of roses but a rollercoaster and a challenging journey. And days aren't always golden and sunny. There is a breaking point in every life and it happens sooner or later. You wake up and the world isn't the same anymore. A zero point in your head and heart. Black mountains to your back, and inner storms kill your last dreams and heroes. But you don't give up. Whatever will happen, you remember your childhood, the warmth of the fireplace and all the cozy feelings. Home is your mental shelter from the poisoned rain, the safehouse where your familiy leaves a light on. And if the world would end tomorrow morning, you don't care tonight. You face your melancholy and the tears. Home is where your heart is. Home is where the sea gulls cry, where the waves break at the golden coast and winds from the North whisper your name. Maybe you are lost in thoughts on open sea. But sirens and mermaids laugh and call your sinking ships back to the port. This not the time to give up. There's always a light to follow and to find your way through the winter night. Home is your guidepost. And you say: Dream me home to the golden shores I belong...

The triptych combines following 3 works and should "read" from left to right:

“How often have I lain beneath rain on a strange roof, thinking of home.”
- William Faulkner

All three paintings are parts of my painting series HOME that's dealing with the definition and the feeling of home. Home is a place inside us. Childhood, memory, nostalgia, yearning. A place for retreat and where our souls can find peace. Trust, creed, our harbour, an emotional safe house. At the same time home has also a historical dimension. This word and the feeling behind bore nations, and in the name of home people waged war and became killers.

This triptych is a true LARGE-SIZED TRIOLOGY. For a large-scale, aesthetic and colourful impression on your wall AND as my authentic and personal artwork with an artistic subsurface message.

I use exclusively oil and acrylic colors, canvas and solid wooden frames in a professional museum quality. The three paintings wear my signature on the front and they are signed, entitled and dated on the backside. Deliberately the sides/edges (about 2 cm wide) are not part of the paintings and show the black painted canvas (beautiful contrast). The paintings are ready to hang (on the backsides: high-quality iron plates with metal inserts and nylon rope for gallery use), unframed and don’t need a frame or any additional surface treatment. All paintings need a single hanging (no backside connections between the paintings). This trilogy contains 3 single paintings, each in acrylic and oil on canvas and with dimensions of 100 (w) x 120 (h) cm. I prefer a hanging distance each of 5 cm between the 3 single paintings. Complete dimensions of this artwork, including the hanging space between the single paintings: 310 (w) x 120 (h) x 2 cm.

The piece (3 paintings) will be safely shipped in a custom wooden crate. It will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and a cover letter. Please note: In context pictures are not necessarily to scale and are for illustrative purposes only.

If you have any questions about this triptych 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,
Christian
