A painting exhibition from artist Victor Braun.
"My work is based on emotional projection, I try to reach an emotion, feel it, live it and carve this onto the canvas. In the application phase, I treat the entire surface with brushes or sponges but also materials and tools that are not generally found in art shops, or recycled. I am trying to utilise tools differently in order to find new textures and relief. I confront darkness and light, looking for contrast to sublimate color.
Working since 2010 in confined areas, the notions of oppression and the need to escape are omnipresent in my work. There is always a confrontation in my paintings. Either in the words of the title or the colours and textures. My emotions are my motivation; the feeling of a place, a moment, a poem or an idea. Travelling and spending time learning about new cultures is feeding my creativity as much as listening to music and reading."
