JÜRGEN SCHMITT ARTIST
MASTER PUPIL & TEACHER
TOPIC 1: PAINTINGS AND DRAWINGS
"The artist Juergen Schmitt often places the pictureworthyness of apparently simple evrydayappearances . With this topic the artist Juergen Schmitt takes up the main motive of his earlier often erotic designs, i.e. the connection of death and Eros and changes its artistically, to the spreading motive of the volatileness of all human work..."
Dr.Andreas Kaernbach,Kurator der Kunstsammlung des Deutschen Bundestages
TOPIC 2: PHOTOGRAPHIC AND PHOTOOVERPAINTING
"Schmitts photooverpaintings are actually very often Vanitas pictures, in which beauty with volatileness is seen together. However the beauty is only recognizable by sensing beyond the reality surface, new to see as texture of possible paintings."
Ulrich Bergmann (Historiker,Bonn)
