About The Artwork

Christoph Schrein explores the sublime in his work. In his paintings on glass, he creates a contemplative space that sucks the observer in an optical maelstrom. From influences of Tachisme, New British Sculpture and also current trends in Generative Art, Christoph Schrein developed an own imagery, which positions itself in contemporary abstract painting. His artwork consists in thoughts, landscapes, physical non-spaces, forming undulating colour streams and fluent movements that unite creating a complex composition. The characteristics of glass as the carrier material – transparency and a plane surface – allow and also require the need to develop new techniques and designs. Applying colour on both sides of the glass leads to a perceptive challenge. Due to the spatial separation of both sides, light is refracted, so that the three-dimensional effect expands. Depending on the incidence angle of the light source and the observer’s position, the spatial and colour perception varies. Thus the image turns into a light object. It seems to shine from its inside out, as if it starts to breathe.

He graduated his studies of Fine Art at the ArtEZ/ Institute of the arts/ Netherlands in 2007. The painter Christoph Schrein has developed his own distinctive abstract imagery throughout his artistic work. His monochrome paintings appear to be in flowing motion. The effect is caused by the superposition of wave-shaped, light-reflecting color streams that create a complex illusion of space and depth. The images should invite to stay and discover, induce a moment of contemplation and slowing down.
