Düsseldorf, Seoul & New York City
Our latest additions to our Art Market are more than international. We just added three brand new artworks by Marius Vieth and one by Martin Dietrich. Our latest additions feature an iconic view on urbanity, a strange moment perfectly captured, able to make you smile instantly. Furthermore we added two colorful night scenes of pure beauty and a lot of love. But see for yourself:
This Shot was taken during my trip to New York City 2013. I wanted to clear my mind a bit, recover from some exhausting weeks at work as well as spend time with my wife. I didn't take too much stuff with me. I wanted to enjoy the trip and the city, which I visited for the first time. As you might expect, New York City is very well documented, photographically wise. There are tons of famous photos and even more not so famous photos. The internet is full of visual impressions of New York City. There are a lot of subjects, places and perspectives that you run across more often: Empire State Building with lower Manhattan shot from Rockefeller Center, Flatiron, Brooklyn Bridge with Manhattan Skyline, the postcard type of shots. As I came across this view during a visit to Roosevelt Island, I instantly saw this iconic view on Manhattan. This is what I call pure urbanity.
I couldn’t believe what I saw when I walked down the streets of Seoul that day. I know that some things may be different in Asia, but I certainly didn’t expect to see that. The dog was so focused on the street that I though he’d hit the road any second.
Someone once said "Anyone can love a rose, but it takes a lot to love a leaf. It's ordinary to love the beautiful, but it's beautiful to love the ordinary“. If there’s one artwork that lends credence to this saying, it’s "On The Stage of Life“. It’s such a mundane, insignificant moment, but the unique choice of colors, composition and natural contrasts brings out the hidden beauty of it.
While I was crossing the street, I saw this romantic scene from the corner of my eye. Within a second I grabbed my cam and hit the shutter. The second I took a second look, the moment was already over. Glad I got it the first time. What makes "A Streetcar Named Desire“ so special is its daring composition and minimalist feel.
