Anonymous. 3 works by Armin Rohr




I can't get these pictures out of my head.
Especially the last one is mesmerizing. Is it peaceful? Mysterious? Haunting? Creepy? Brutal?
The mass in the first two paintings that makes up a threatening, or at least disquieting block, is here replaced by three distinct figures. The space is neither claustrophobic, as in the first one, nor agoraphobic, as could be claimed about the second (notice the ceiling moving up above the horizontal line that "closes" the picture). In the third picture, the space is abstract. It is the water we often feel is the closest to the sky. So what's the matter? Maybe it's the skyish space combined with the strokes, the juicy, dripping pinks that get feverish in the center? Maybe it's the unfaceness of these faces? The ghost should be ephemeral, translucid. Yet here, the ghosts are opaque. They are thick with body. And moving in.

All works are by Armin Rohr, found on his blog.

Love the style this artist puts into his paintings. It seems as if he wants to give identity to them, but also makes it mysterious and unnoticeable to us viewers.

Very interesting work. Figurative and almost minimalist. Also it is a nice juxtaposition of flatness and depth.

The third one (pink), in particular, really spoke to me. It was really eerie and mysterious but beautiful. Thanks for sharing!

I would love to see these pieces in person. Are they on show anywhere in the UK? Preferably London... If not oh well, I shall have to be content with the photo..

The last one is particularly beautiful and haunting.

Best
