About the artist
Look into his paintings and discover your soul:
What composers do with music, poets with words, Volker wants to do with his paintings—trigger impulses that get the soul of the viewer to vibrate.
Taught by his grandfather, the German painter Otto Gloßmann, Volker began with realistic paintings. However, since 1985, he has predominately done abstract paintings with references to abstract expressionism. He paints intuitively and emotionally: he wants to create images in the mind and in the heart of the viewer that capture the imagination of others. The art historian Gerhard Charles Rump about the artist:
“Volker's paintings in their combination of painterly gestures and visible structures of the colour mass are remarkable, the colours themselves, their tones. They move in rarely explored areas, do not jump at the viewer, but require sensitive approach and a willingness to see them with patience to see all traces of nuances. Images as they are dynamic in origin and have a form of inventory, that makes a meditative element.”
