Gerd Bannuscher

A moment of eternity, this is what the North German painter Gerd Bannuscher captures in his elaborate paintings. He approaches the essence of things with a fine stroke as if there were more to them than the visible reality. As if there were a message hidden in the image.

The hyperreal presence of the motifs is indelibly heightened by Bannuscher's precision craftsmanship. Cool and shimmering colours with a slightly metallic touch merge with the fine lines. All enhanced by the contrast of light and dark and the many telling details. In all his works, Bannuscher creates a special, quiet drama that clearly addresses our emotional depth of feeling.

The artist, who lives in Eichede, Germany, sees his works not only as an aesthetic but also as a political, social view of life that creates an awareness of the beauty and vulnerability of our planet.

In addition to numerous national and international exhibitions, Bannuscher has been working for the Sultanate of Oman since 2003.
