Thomas Aeffner

"Life is motion - motion is life". This theme of Thomas Aeffner, born in Lower Saxony, Germany, in 1953, runs through the painter's entire oeuvre. Aeffner's themes are power and dynamics, which he has been able to capture with skilful strokes for more than three decades.

A recurring motif in his work is horses - Aeffner is considered the contemporary horse painter par excellence in equestrian circles. In his landscapes and flower paintings, Thomas Aeffner also explores dynamically vital elements, such as the wind in the branches, the swaying of the blades in the field or the drifting clouds in the sky. The search for what moves the world is reflected in dynamic strokes, the vivid play of colours and the compelling contrast.
