Artist Christian von Grumbkow
Christian von Grumbkow is a master of colour. In his paintings, be it on wood, canvas, or on paper, von Grumbkow uses colour both as a means of expression and for its concrete substantiality.
Thus, the Wuppertal based painter celebrates colour’s specific beauty as well as its suggestive power to transcend itself and to refer to this world and beyond.
After all his changes, u-turns, and new approaches it obviously appears to be a variation of just one single theme. Among the endless variety of possibilities, his work deliberately leads to just one aim: towards colour and the infinite potential inherent in it.
Grumbkow`s statement about his paintings:
" I am not painting a message, I am not painting any kind of thoughts, I am painting colour"
