The works by artist Christian Awe impress with their color intensity, their dynamics and their rhythm. Awe combines colors and shapes in a symbiosis of spontaneity, experimentation and artistic calculation, thus creating a moment of freedom and joie de vivre for the viewer.
The focus of his complex and mostly color-intensive works is the examination of the basics of painting such as color, contrast and composition.
For Awe, color is pure life energy and passion. It embodies freedom, power and love, and can trigger feelings and emotions. Whether on canvas, paper, painting installations or large-format murals - Awe's works fascinate with their radiance and their finely nuanced vitality. In doing so, he repeatedly explores the limits of painting.
The powerful lightness of art, seemingly effortlessly captured by the artist in the intuitively playful use of color and light. Compositions of matt and shiny layers, colorful rivulets and eruptive dynamic color splashes that merge with airy, floating gestures. They unite to form poetically pulsating worlds of color that touch the senses, pave their way and sweep us away into a world of emotions.
Awe's works invite us to embark on an inspiring journey of the senses. Explosive, but also controlled; powerful and pulsating, but at the same time full of sensitivity and lightness. As a creative sign of joie de vivre, they radiate courage and confidence and give the viewer a moment full of lightheartedness and optimism.
