Volker Mayr Visual Artist, contemporary art, abstract art
Look into his paintings and discover your soul: what composers do with music, Volker wants to do with his paintings — trigger impulses that get the soul of the viewer to vibrate.
Taught by his grandfather, the German painter Otto Gloßmann, Volker began with realistic paintings. However, since 1985, he has predominately done abstract paintings with references to abstract expressionism. He paints intuitively and emotionally: he wants to create images in the mind and in the heart of the viewer that capture the imagination of others.
The art historian Gerhard Charles Rump about his works: „Volker’s paintings in their combination of painterly gestures and visible structures of the colour mass 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.“
Artworks in Collections of Deutsche Bank, Vattenfall, Berlin Hotel Bristol-Kempinski and with a Triptychon in the Jakob-Kaiser-Foundation.
