Wolfgang Blanke & Patricia Broothaers
15h – 18h
Wolfgang BLANKE is well known for his paintings, for which he uses raw materials only, pigments, and various binders. He uses natural resins, oils, waxes, and no industrially produced colors. In this way, the artist continually finds new ways and means of expressing himself, both his personality and his current mood. The difficult moment of the so-called “pure painting” is a clash of recognition. You feel this fascinating material while you are in a dialog of such painting progress, you listen to it and it guides you. With transparent layers, he can show both the progress of the painting and the thrilling edge between form 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.
