In the Spotlight: Lutz Schoenherr

WHO

Born in 1953, afterleaving school I seriously considered to study art and design. But life turned out differently: I became a social worker/social scientist and in a second universitary education I becam a linguist.

WHAT + WHY

In 2007 I changed my life completely to finally become a fulltime artist. I spent some time joining courses in acrylic painting, later in a privat art school to learn basics in screen printing. All the “rest”: self studies, self training, self made…

STYLE

It’s all about colours and forms: nothing in nature is strongly geometrical, like squares, triangles or circles. But everything humans desingned follows these schemes. This is where I usually start. I use basically these rudimentary forms, repeat and change and repeat and change. I change only slightly in each step – but in the end sometimes you can hardly see any more, where it all came from. Sometimes you will get the impression 3-dimensional pictures, of dizzying dynamics. Sometimes you’ll associate crowds of people.

GOALS

My art is a never ending story. Working on one project, the next will turn up in my mind. A friend of mine put in these words: “I think, I know only 1 picture of you.” – But in reality it may have been the same subject, but in new shape and design. All the time. Allways unique and new.

PHILOSOPHY

There is no special purpose hidden in my work. I seem to be playing with forms and colours. But any viewer will be invited to see more “in” or “behind” my work. And come up with own conclusions about the reality he/she is living in.

FINAL STATEMENT

Playing is an important part of life.

Thank you, Lutz.

What can you tell us about yourself as an artist?

I am an artist from Düsseldorf with Polish roots. While studying German and philosophy, I worked as a model at the art academy, where I realized that studying German was a waste of time and that art was the only real thing in life. I started painting, dropped out of college and enrolled in the art academy.

What do you do and why?

I am a representative of concrete art and my main subject is the diamond. At the beginning I was not aware of this, but after two years I am still amazed and fascinated by the infinite possibilities and the diversity of designing this shape.

How would you define your style?

The diamond dancing on the top is a geometric composition in which I examine the interplay of color and shape. The balanced color areas create sharp edges, which in turn create the three-dimensional geometric construction. It is precisely these hard edges that ensure calm, strength, harmony and order within the structure. The overall appearance of the diamond is enhanced by the contrast of the brown, rough, natural canvas on which I paint.

What are your goals from an artistic point of view?

The goal of every artist is to paint the “ideal painting”, isn’t it? And we fail brilliantly 😉

What does being an artist mean to you?

Being an artist means freedom! It means having the ability to share your thoughts, ideals and beauty with others and hopefully making them think and smile along the way.

Anything else you’d like to tell the readers?

When I look at my painting, my perception changes, my thoughts calm down until I stop thinking completely and I fall into a kind of meditation. My paintings are like mantras for me.
