Herbert Bauer – SURREAL THOUGHTS – ICONS OF MUSIC
Herbert Bauer is currently working on a series titled “SURREALE GEDANKEN”.
A part of this series is devoted to the ICONS OF MUSIC.
He was supposed to be a musician. The enormous exercise drill from his parents led him to devote himself to painting and graphics. Like a sword of Damocles music pursued him.
Sensitive by graphite pencil, he drew his thoughts and dreams – Surreal – idiosyncratic.
He felt attracted by the „single-phobia“.
Thoughts of Mozart, Verdi, Wagner and music icons of the 20th Century, coupled with Dali resulted in a graphically surreal design of his drawings.
Shapes, balls, breasts and body characterize his images. A recurring thought of compulsion, is solidified to a pictorial unity. Rarely other influences take effect.
