I feel a bit controversial about Herbert Brandl. His works are really impressive in reality because of the huge formats, and he really is able to capture distinct light atmospheres. At the same time I miss a more critical, or maybe the better word is “political” facet in his works. It doesn’t seem like the reality of humans on the planet is affecting his work, it’s much more an inside point of view.
One dark one:
One of the reasons for this impression might be, that Herbert Brandl is creating his paintings in a very short amount of time (app. 20 min), it’s some kind of action painting. I didn’t knew about this fact before. Now I’m impressed and feel like I understand his work a lot better.
One light one:
And, to be honest: Those mountain paintings are awesome!
