locally known artists

artist "Robert Lenkiewicz"
Working as a
freelance artist (in Germany)
For a couple of years has Kenneth-Edward
Swinscoe concentrated his oil painting
with the reduction of the colours to
black white contrasts to which he adds a
few specific coloured accents. In his
graphic appearing and often surrealistic
artworks he plays with the perspective.
Playfully he works with this and a
specific use of light and shade
contrasts. He lets the three aspects of
symbolism and mysticism flow into is
works, to which he adds a
defamiliarization of the contours.
would like to cause a spatial depth in
my works, which plays with the apparent
three-dimensional effects. The gaze of
the observer shall be first drawn to the
middle of the picture and only later to
expand to the outer areas of the work.
Not only the apparent surreal
three-dimensionality room is made on the
canvas, but also portraits of famous
personalities and "people from the
neighbourhood" It is the photo realism
with every last little detail which
draws the observer of these pictures
into his spell.
