Emotions and thoughts accompany us in everyday life wherever we go.
Often understood and depicted as contrasts, they are nevertheless inextricably interwoven. Sebastian Merk’s abstract works capture precisely this interplay between different aspects of visual and cognitive processes of human experience.
Varied in their choice of colour, his paintings inevitably draw the viewer’s eye into the high-contrast compositions of gestural brushstrokes, sweeping colour gradients and dynamic traces of his intuition-led work. Impulsively, he applies his techniques mostly to large-format canvases.
The result is a mixed world of energetic characteristics, which has the ability not only to create not only eccentric chaos, but also endless introversion.
Due to the lively dynamics, the gaze is focused and a meditative state is induced at the same time.
The expressiveness and intensity as core elements of his style are fed by his intuition as well as his artistic and emotional level of experience. artistic and emotional level of experience, which absorbs the viewer into profound, overwhelming worlds of colour, overwhelming worlds of colour.
His unique works have already been exhibited in London, Hamburg, Frankfurt and other metropolises. and can be found in private collections around the world in Hong Kong, Dubai, New York and other international cities.
