New Art

watching the night

Posted By fritzzo 5 days ago on Art

https://zettl.blog - About winter depressions. Since this topic has been with me for decades, I would like to present a few examples that have emerged over the years. A useful tool to cope with this is the artistic reflection on this topic.

new works in abstract surrealism

Posted By fritzzo 12 days ago on Art

https://zettl.blog - When it comes to painting, I'm most creative in the evening and after-hours. I can turn off the day's events and concentrate fully on painting. However, I have to be careful not to work too long. It often happens that I start with enthusiasm and vigor and fall in love with a job right from the start.

tryptich variant

Posted By fritzzo 15 days ago on Art

https://zettl.blog - I presented a tryptich a few days ago. As is so often the case, the underlying idea has not been shelved for me and so I wanted to see how a variant could look like. So I created another work to replace one of the tryptich.

walzing corona

Posted By fritzzo 19 days ago on Art

https://zettl.blog - My first painting this year is this triptych. I will take this as an opportunity to present my point of view, because if I can manage to explain the essential points clearly, you may look at Chinese art from a different perspective in the future.

New Year’s Pastime

Posted By fritzzo 23 days ago on Art

https://zettl.blog - In China, calligraphy is mainly written for the Chinese New Year, as far as calligraphy is still used. This year I wanted to start our New Year with calligraphy, with a poem by Tang Yin. He's not my favorite calligrapher, nor my favorite poet, but his work is good if you haven't practiced seriously in a long time.

about my surrealist work

Posted By fritzzo 31 days ago on Art

https://zettl.blog - When I started painting decades ago, the first few years were marked by surrealism. Mainly because I was more concerned with literature and I soon came across authors like André Breton or Paul Éluard, whose ideas fascinated and influenced me.

trying environment topic

Posted By fritzzo 48 days ago on Art

https://zettl.blog - I made 2 versions on a topic that has been with me for a long time: 2 vanishing points. The easiest way to depict this idea is in a landscape painting and so I chose this construction.

new territories to explore

Posted By fritzzo 58 days ago on Art

https://zettl.blog - I haven't painted as much for a long time as I did this year and my vigor, joy and urge to improve is unbroken. Now we are in the 4th lockdown and I take it very calmly - more time to paint….
I deliberately took a short break from my Corona series. That prevents me from moving too much in the normal course. This is not new to me, when I enter the feel-good phase I make a caesura. I think it was Jan Cocteau who said: "Bathing in luke-warm water makes you anemic".
