Christian Neuman conjures curiously touchable canvases with compelling and emotive narratives. Neuman’s art is an enthralling voyage for the senses and the rebellious soul. The artist describes how he works: on the edge of pure expression, in order to capture the most authentic and un-embellished states of human emotion. Take for example his work, ’Conscious I’, conjured in black oils as thick, rich, and dark as tar, which appear to be making a bid to escape the surface of the canvas. The work is wonderfully personal and theatrical and embraces a diverse range of human emotions.
For Neuman, forging a consistent aesthetic link between his works is essential. His background as a filmmaker no doubt informs this approach - with methodic, thoughtful and philosophical processes creating a linear storybook experience for the viewer.
