Original painting in oil and spray paint on canvas.
"Original painting in Working on the thin line of abstraction where painting might end. Working right on the edge before anything else than pure expressionism can take place. The painting represents a non conformist thought process. It embodies philosophical and political thoughts in a radical aesthetic."
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.
