Dubbick’s artistic work represents “feeling one’s way” in the world and a critical view of Nature, of everything that has always determined our being and will continue do so in future. Here he immerses himself in the past, there he formulates very individual views of the sea and moon, elsewhere he devotes himself to studies of clouds, flowers and colours. Many of these portrayals give the impression of slight to strong movement, sometimes held within bounds, at others seemingly free. This essentially applies to his in-depth preoccupation with water, the life-giving element and with the memory that water evokes. Dubbick is also able to excitingly and harmoniously convey water’s pulsation, its “heartbeat” and “soul”, in glowing and restrained, frequently contrasting colours and sometimes graphically arranged representations.

Examples of the artistic work:




Ogushi, Koji

Born 1949 (Yokohama)

Lives in Tokyo

1974 Completed his studies at the University of Arts, Tokyo

1979 Studied the cave paintings at Lascaux, France

From 1979 exhibitions and performances.

Ogushi’s work features an entry into the “animated and spirit-filled organism” that is Nature and its manifestations. His preoccupation with archaic cultures and traditions in particular focuses on their meaning and effect, their importance to us and future generations. One of Ogushi’s important reference sources is the Stone Age cave paintings at Lascaux, France. His pen-and-ink paintings have their roots in the eastern Asian tradition of calligraphy, which he adds to in a contemporary and unrestrained manner. His performances also impart what has been handed down and what is visionary.

Rüngeler is a painter and graphic artist. His work is characterised by oils on canvas or wood, watercolours and coloured woodcuts. Landscapes, plus still lives, are his preferred genre. Rüngeler’s small- to large-scale landscapes, which he “finds” in the Eifel region of Germany, the Lower Rhine, and other areas of Germany, as well as in Scandinavia, Portugal and regularly in Andalusia, Spain, can consist of several sections/panels. His pictures couple in-depth observations of Nature and an analytical approach. In his case visualisation and reflection frequently lead to great abstraction of what he has seen in reality. Rüngeler applies a rational use of forms, uses basic geometric and artistic shapes. His colour scheme is guided by natural shades, whose wealth is accented by shades of blue and white, and others. Occasionally the motif is also determined by extensive monochromatic areas. Although Nature takes precedence in Rüngeler’s landscapes, one repeatedly finds settlements embedded in them, such as views of towns and places. His pictures convey a special atmosphere, which is essentially based on his virtuoso depiction of light and its effects. Numerous works appear to be lit from inside, to generate a glow. Wide areas of sky and prismatically arranged cloud formations are characteristic of Rüngeler’s landscapes. He frequently uses deep horizons, letting the light play on the clouds. His balanced, uplifting compositions place distance and scale in relation to each other, on the other hand they appear to be excerpts from an infinity that leads away from the earthly.
