„What composers do with music, poets with words, I wish with my abstract paintings: inspire people and create emotions“

I want to trigger impulses that make the soul of the viewer vibrate.“

ABSTRAKTE KUNST, moderne Kunst, Ölgemälde

Abstract art creates images in the minds and souls of viewers, capture their imagination and emotion. Volkers pictures arise from all the senses and feelings: they are sensual, un-premeditated and with a playful love for enigmatic details. Multiple and vibrant relationships between colors and surface textures are being created by layers that form transparent views, bold and expressive, emotional and spontaneous.

„My dreams tend to be colorful but non-figurative – thus, my paintings follow my dreams“

The art historian Gerhard Charles Rump about Volker Mayr: 

„Mayrs paintings in their combination of painterly gestures and visible structures of the colour mass are remarkable, the colours themselves, their tones. They move in rarely explored areas, do not jump at the viewer, but require sensitive approach and a willingness to see them with patience to see all traces of nuances. Images as they are dynamic in origin and have a form of inventory, that makes a meditative element.“ 

Volker Mayr lives and works in Berlin. He was taught by his grandfather, the german painter Otto Glossmann and has been painting since his childhood. In the beginning of his art career he started with realistic painting. Since 1985, non-figurative works predominate with references to abstract expressionism. Volkers works are mostly oil on canvas. Considerable place take gouaches with oil crayons.

Abstrakte Kunst gehört für Volker Mayr zu den schönsten Möglichkeiten, Gefühle auszudrücken und zu erzeugen

„Celebration Of Colours“ Details at Singulart:

„Celebration Of Colours“, „This work is overwhelming.“ Jury review by the Netherlands art-competition PAINTING OF THE YEAR: „This work is overwhelming. At first sight it seems to be total chaos. But looking longer you discover a vertical structure in the whole that gives you a grip. This is certainly visible from afar. The maker is clearly charmed by the primary colours. With here and there just a different tone of blue-green. White is important in this work. Because this colour is of an entirely different order. An almost heavenly order. It gives little moments of escape, as if you are looking through the work.“  

moderne kunst: Volker Mayr malt im Stil des abstrakten Expressionismus.

Intuitiv, spontan und emotional erweckt er Farben und Formen zum Leben. Der künstlerische Prozess bei Ölgemälden beginnt meist mit der ausdrucksstarken Grundierung der Leinwand als Formen-Welt, in der sich dann die Farben entwickeln. Hauchdünn mit feinen Pinseln wird die Ölfarbe aufgetragen, so dass alle Farbschichten eine gewisse Transparenz behalten und optimale Leuchtkraft.

Kunstpreis "Gold Award" der World Association of Artists WAA USA

Das Ölbild „Fiesta“ erhielt den GOLD AWARD (1.Preis) der World Association of Artists (USA) in deren internationalem Jahres-Kunstwettbewerb 2020

Details zu „Fiesta“ bei Singulart:

Gelegentlich verspürt der Künstler auch heute noch Lust auf figurative Malerei, die seine Arbeit bis in die achtziger Jahre des vorigen Jahrhunderts prägte: Landschaften Menschen, Stillleben. So entstehen hin und wieder auch semi-abstrakte Bilder.
