« When I'm in the process, I do not think. I let the process guide me. »
Today the German painter and graphic artist Uwe Beyer, born in 1959, lives and works in Coswig, near Dresden as well as in Dusseldorf. After training and working at the Meissner Porzellanmanufaktur (1976 - 1988), he studied at the Burg Giebichstein Kunsthochschule in Halle (1988 - 1993). He traveled to numerous countries (Venice, Istanbul, Damascus, Jordan ...) for study purposes and holds several teaching assignments - currently for art and design at the TÜV Rheinland private school in Düsseldorf.
Illustrative structural painting
Uwe Beyer's paintings bear witness to a structurally influenced style. Lines and surfaces form organic structures as abstractions of external and internal processes of perception. He uses tools such as brushes, spatulas, paint buckets, sponges, rollers, and more. With a pencil, for example, he exerts more or less pressure in order to achieve his own visual language. In a spontaneous gesture, the artist lets himself be guided by the work, withdraws and keeps an open mind with regards to changes. The material and the technique guide him, wherefore he does not impose a certain expression.Lire la suite
Life and experiences as sources of inspiration
Uwe Beyer takes on memories and experiences. Inspired by life itself, he tries to transfer underlying processes to canvas. He considers painting an act that is analogous to nature's processes of change. He creates new things out of that which already exists. His layers of painting end as open structures that convey universal messages and are thus drawn from the figurative to the abstract.
Since 1995, Uwe Beyer has regularly taken part in solo and group exhibitions. His works are often accompanied by catalogs and press articles.Masquer
