Willi Kissmer: Picture "Wrapped in White"

No, they are not photos! These are internationally known artistic works created on the basis of the real photos. The initial black and white photos were carefully arranged by the artist, so that the body posture of his models and the folds of their dresses correspond to his concepts in the smallest details. Looking at the prepared photos, Kissmeer creates his photorealistic oil paintings, in which the real photograph is represented step by step. As a result he creates pictures which hyperrealistically exaggerate the photo - that is why the oil painting represents the reality much closer and more exactly than a simple photograph.

Painting as gridless giclée on handmade paper. Limited edition of 99 copies, numbered and signed by hand. Sheet format 46 x 92 cm (W/H). Framed in solid wood model frame with a mat. Format 58.5 x 104 cm (W/H). Available exclusively at ars mundi.

Willi Kissmer is born in 1951 in Duisburg. He studied with Professor Hermann Schardt graphics at the Folkwang School in Essen. Study tours have taken him to Italy, South America and Russia. In 1987 he was followed by a visit to India.

Exhibitions in Lehmbruck Museum, Duisburg and Portsmouth, New York, Moscow, St. Petersburg and Basel underline its international importance.

He is a gifted master of etching technology. He makes expressive works of sensual aesthetics and raised charm with passion and perfection. Half range, half revealed Kissmers file by combining sexy fascinate by body and tissue, smooth skin and drape of the cloth landscape. Almost photo-realistic, and superior, Kissmer creates erotic art in perfection but the snapshot of camera.

While the internationally known artist works with photographic templates with simple image-realism have his works, however, little to do. The previously created black and white photographs are carefully arranged by him, until the posture of its model and the folds of their clothing, corresponds exactly to its ideas to every detail. On this basis, manufactures Kissmer in labour intensive detailed work photorealistic oil paintings, in which he approaches working step by step to the "reality" behind the image. The result is images that hyper realistic exaggerate the photographed arrangement - and which act as a colour oil painting, much closer, more accurate and more alive than ever could a mere photograph.

The true nature of the body is three-dimensional, tactile. The dedicated artist Willi Kissmer detail in his sculptural works. The invisible side, which creates a subtle tension in his paintings, is now to be seen. Kissmer succeeds with his sensitive, almost hyper real form language based on his graphic talent the sizzling eroticism of the subject to get around upright. The enveloping material is the unmistakable spice for visual pleasure. Kissmer focuses on the expressive centre of the female body and makes it a highly personal projection of the viewer. Only then is perfecting the art of internationally known artist.

Giclée = derived from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt, spray".

Giclée method is a digital printing process. It is a high-resolution, large-format printout on an inkjet printer with special different coloured or pigment-based inks (usually six to twelve). The colours are light-fast, that is, resistant to harmful UV light. They have a high richness of nuance, contrast and saturation.

The Giclée process is suitable for real art canvas, handmade and watercolor paper and for silk.
