About the artist

Philip Grözinger is born in 1972, and graduated from Hochschule für Bildende Künste, Braunschweig in 1998. In his pictorial universe, Grözinger is to be conceived as a post-romanticist, although he shows nature not as idyllic, but as a dystopian wasteland. His image world is populated by creatures from a partly ulcous, but also abysmal, shadowy realm, in which anxieties and other mental distortions lurk. Bright colors, psychedelic patterns, pastos-stalked oil paint are to be read as a conscious set of references to the history of painting.

The anchoring in the history of art is countered by a proliferate motifs from the contemporary pop culture. In the interplay between quasi-surrealistic insanity and mischievous casualness, Grözinger repeatedly refers to certain historical or topographical contexts.
