Benjamin Bernt

In his artistic work, Benjamin Bernt deals with the human figure and the fictional portrait. Looking at his drawings and paintings, a play begins between foreground and background, between color and shapes. Silhouettes of heads or figures can be seen in a line that contrast with those of color fields. His greatest challenge is to capture the fleetingness of the moment. References from art history and literature, but also his own everyday absurdities and psychological states, are an integral part of this process. When looking at his pictures, one is challenged to recognize a fictional character in the compositions without prior evaluation. It is precisely the timelessness and a feeling of deceleration that make his works so elementary for us in these fast-moving times.
