Wolfgang Blanke (*1948, Münster, Germany)
Blanke is very famous for his paintings, where he uses exclusively raw materials, pigments and various binders. He uses natural resins, oils, waxes, no industrially produced colours. This is how the artist keeps finding new ways and processes of representation, whose expressions can show his personality and present mood more directly.
The difficult moment of this so called “pure painting” is a shock of recognition and it is heaven after all. You feel this fascinating material while you are in a dialog of a painting progress, you listen to it and it guides you. With transparent layers he can show both the progress of painting and the thrilling edge between figure and background. Your perception will find your own specific way of identification.
Besides art, Wolfgang Blanke is a dedicated sailor and seaman. Both of these two passions, art and sailing, have shaped his life up to now. identification.
