Bright Colours and Powerful Shapes - Discover new art by Wilhelm Beermann from Düsseldorf Art Academy
Wilhelm Beermann was born in Herten, Germany, in 1985. An avid painter from his early childhood, he started his studies in visual arts at the Art Academy in Mainz. In 2014, he continued at the Art Academy Düsseldorf, class of Professor Thomas Grünfeld, from where he graduated in 2017. Since 2013, his work has been shown in numerous exhibitions. The artist lives and works in Düsseldorf.
“I paint because it is the only activity that calms me down. But books or screens also work quite well. The object in front of me must be rectangular; then my eyes find peace”, says Wilhelm when asked why he paints.
He quotes Gauguin and Cézanne as profound influences for his work: “I frequently go to museums and allow myself the liberty of being a big fan of different artists. It all started with Gauguin. I was maybe eleven or twelve." He also believes that painting has a lot to do with imitation: “The living subject and the works of great artists in the back of the head — both influences the resulting work.” Hence, his brightly coloured paintings reflect his admiration for painters such as Mondrian or Matisse.
However, Wilhelm claims, that his paintings are not necessarily "about" something: they are the counterpart to unspecific experiences, a random product from the abundance of everyday influences: "My form language employs constructivism and colour-field painting and is also reminiscent of hard-edge or minimal. At the same time, what surrounds and interests me in everyday life slips in consciously and unconsciously.” such as in his paintings “Untitled, The Bather” (2017), and “Untitled” (2016).
The young painter’s ambition is to create images that do not portray a specific period or space, but instead act as a mirror and thus are always new for the beholder. “I believe that a picture can open up a reflective experience in a visual, cognitive, emotional, and spiritual way for both its creator and the beholder.” (“Untitled”, 2017).
This consequently led to his decision to predominantly work with lacquer and the smooth surface of aluminium, which underlines the viewer’s reflection in the picture technically as well. He applies different and competing compositional rules using even unconventional tools such as sanders or solvents for his art. Before putting the paint on the carrier, he makes sketches and works out a plan. However, he has never managed to complete a picture according to plan, he explains and points out that “the painting is complete when the compositional elements are positioned in such a way that they enter into a continuous interplay.”
