Synthesis, definition, tidiness, and audacity are all elements interacting in a sort of counterpoint in Anwandter’s work. The figure and the way of painting are both the main characters in his work, yet mutually dependent on each other, interweaving back and forth with accents and silences. His subjects are depicted in atemporal spaces so as not to distract us with anecdotes suggesting different emotional scenarios. His paintings call to our attention in gestures and textures. His technical prowess is extraordinary, exhibiting many different strokes: from the heavy paintbrush to the lightest whisper of touch, all interacting with the smoothness of the spatula. Glazings and layers of direct paint create sensations that sensually reveal to us the diaspora of chromatic scope, a land of vibrant colour existing in between warmth and cold.
