Zurich (ptp024/19.07.2019/14:00) - The Swiss artist Fant Wenger announces today that in August 2019 several of his artworks will be shown at the ARTBOX.PROJECT Zürich 1.0 during the SWISSARTEXPO art festival. Among other pieces, iconic works such as "Funkloch" and "Funkfeuer" will be presented, providing a wonderful insight into the style and artistic work of Fant Wenger. The exhibition will take place from 15th to 19th August 2019 in Zurich's Main Station Hall.
In Fant Wenger's paintings, nature and technology usually collide in a rugged and momentous way. Not only is the chosen spectrum of colours powerful, the artist also places railway wagons, telephone poles, parabolic antennas or even a satellite in the landscape. These are surrounded by trees with extensive branches and undergrowth. Powerful and often bare, they cross the pictorial space. The paintings show a distinct dynamism, which is intensified by the size of the canvases. Light plays an important role in Fant Wenger's painting.
He selectively dips individual elements into glistening light, which in various works spreads out over the entire picture surface, illuminating it supernaturally and running through the room like jack-o'-lanterns. Which sparks jump here and what is sent or received in this world full of riddles? No causal or linear connection can be read. The artist gives hints through the titles, which can nourish suspicions, but without giving a real interpretation.
The works of art of Fant Wenger already give a hint after a short look that this artist masters his craft very well. He does not leave any of his compositions to chance, but intensively deals with their meaning and implementation, until he finally manages to reproduce all his thoughts in a harmonious interplay on the canvas.
Furthermore, Fant Wenger announces today the publication of his newly published art catalogue. In this catalogue he presents a variation of his typical mixed technique works. Due to the high printing quality and the unique works which are illustrated in it, this catalogue is entirely convincing. It will also be on display at SWISSARTEXPO in its best location as a great prelude. Anyone wishing to convince themselves of Wenger's works and the new catalogue is cordially invited to do so live in Zurich in August.
The art catalogue of Fant Wenger can now also be ordered on https://artbox-publish.myshopify.com/products/fant-wenger?_pos=1&_sid=9c7d2a1ce&_ss=r and Amazon.
