Artist's description:

October and November 2017 was the first time that the body of work ‘Blue Observers’ (a solo show of 12 paintings) has been exhibited publicly anywhere.

Murnau Den Linden has been long inspired by nature and climate change. He surrounds himself in his studio with objects, ephemera and antiquities from ancient civilizations. These new works have emerged from Murnau’s interests in the idea of the embodiment of nature and millenary, dead languages.

These subjects have huge resonance right now, after four consecutive hurricanes in the Caribbean area and several earthquakes in Mexico that have made enormous damages in different areas.

Each of the following paintings is created from previous studios in a series of representations of hurricanes Katia, Irma, María and José. Their interlinked figures sometimes appear to be smiling, talking, welcoming us to their world, and sometimes to be acting violently, seducing us to be their victims, to fall consumed by their supreme strength.

In the ‘Blue Observers’ series the artist shares his views on the supremacy of Planet Earth over animal species, and how just native communities with an organic auto-adaptation —sustainable solutions of farming and worship to nature, will prevail to its fury.
