Artspace Warehouse (Los Angeles)
Gerhard Völkle was born 1953 in Lörrach, Germany and studied at the Kunstgewerbeschule Basel, Switzerland. His connection to the Spanish island Lanzarote and fascination with the ubiquitous volcanic rocks has long been reflected in his artworks. He incorporates real rust in his mixed media artworks. Expressiveness through reduction: Silhouetted figure paintings, sculptures and installations are brought to life through a self-developed rust process. Völkle uses rust as an aesthetic surface, as a representative of historical past and a symbol of naturalness, weathering, corrosion and decay.
This 28 inch tall by 20 inch wide original mixed media artwork on white canvas is wired and ready to hang. It is signed by the artist on the front of the painting. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable US and worldwide shipping. A certificate of authenticity issued by the gallery is included.
The connection to the island of Lanzarote (Spain), his fascination for the volcanic rock found everywhere on the island, has long been reflected in the art of Gerhard Völkle. The oxidizing rust changes surfaces, leaving behind unpredictable and diverse traces beyond artistic control.

In order to capture the same color and structure as his metalworks on canvas, he is using the same media, the rust. A special technique to create metal oxidation allows Völkle to work with real rust which creates amazing visual effects. The final outcome of the artwork is taken from his hand. The process of oxidation takes over and transforms the canvas into a breathing body. As clear and defined the minimalist forms are as alive become their surfaces.
