Christian Peschke: Painting ‘Three Friends’, without frame

Peschke shows the beautiful animals in all their sensuality: the rounded tip and the bent tail, the soft mouth and the curved mane, the semicircle of hooves under the strong ankles ... And he puts them in a circle. This friendship is the center from which the vitality of the three horses draws its power. One seems to hear how they neigh and to see that they are full of desire to stamp with their hooves.

Original lithograph. Printed with 3 stones in 4 stages in the stone printing house Huegelow, Offenbach am Main. The small edition was created using the exquisite craftsmanship with the help of the stones designated and worked on by the artist in the traditional Senefelder’s printing process.

Der deutsche Zeichner, Maler, Keramiker und Bildhauer Christian Peschke1946-2017

The German artist was born in Saeckingen but grew up alternately in Spain, France, and Stuttgart. Even as a student, he received a special privilege to study at the Art Academy in Stuttgart, and at age 21, he created his first independent sculpture. Later, however, he chose a traditional craftsman training as a painter and varnisher and shifted to self-employment. In the 70s he met the Vienna artist Rudolf Hausner and realized plastic implementations of works by Ernst Fuchs, Salvador Dalí, and Arno Breker. He decided to pursue a career as a freelance artist.

Christian Peschke made a name for himself as a draftsman and painter, ceramist and sculptor and thrilled the audience with his works. His creations are characterized by a design language that is reduced to the essentials. In many cases geometric basic forms such as a circle, oval and triangle merge into one or more shapes. And yet Peschke, despite his ability to abstract, is a nature-bound artist.

His preferred subject, the female body, is seen as a symbol of nature: to give life to his gift, in its lavish abundance and opulence and in the effortless association of heterogeneous to a harmonious whole. Peschke did not geometrize the female bodies to separate them but tended to unify them. The artist divided his objects, but instead of splintering or dissolving, he joined them in new forms: the perfect harmony is visible from every point. It is either expressed in the gentle oval of the embrace and in the soft round of the face; the absolute consistency encompasses body, mind, and soul.

In his works, the nature-loving artist wanted to make clear that the man is not the ruler of nature, but only a part of the complex harmony of the universe.
