Ule W. Ritgen: Picture "Under a Dark Sky"

"Under a Dark Sky" presents a big city which is similar to New York, but in fact it is a metaphor for a big city. Looking carefully one can recognize the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben and even the Brunderbrg Gate. The idea of the work comes from the former Scorpions gitarist Uli Jon Roth. "Under a Dark Sky" appears as a cover artwork for the album of Uli Roth dated 2008, which bears the same name. Rotgen says: "Uli has a clear concept - it depicts freedom. The picture is a metaphor of the state of the modern world - a dangerous world on the crossroads: the dark clouds of the unscrupulous technological egomania threaten to enslave the earthy life and to destroy it in the end... Only when we accept our spiritual identity, as children of the Creator and the keepers of his creations, we shall stand this battle..."

Giclée on canvas. Limited edition of 199 copies, numbered on the back side and signed by hand. Mounted on a stretcher, format ca. 125 x 84 cm. Framed in an elaborate solid wood studio frame.
