Paintings with natural pigments, goldfoil, precious stones
Born in 1944, lives and works in Luxembourg.
His artworks are in many public and private collections world-wide as well as presented at the Embassies of Luxembourg in Vienna (AT) and Dubai (UAE).
"Painting with beeswax fascinates him. This technique was invented by the Egyptians and rediscovered by Eugène Delacroix ... It creates, perhaps involuntarily, a bridge between ancient Egypt and our current culture of lyrical abstraction. Alchemy starts to play a dominant role. He holds the medium, juggles it, but he wants to use it in different ways, to invent other possibilities. Through adding of the pigments pressed into the wax he receives a thicker material, superimposed in the colored layers. The tactile, sensitive reliefs obtained by this technique gives a new reading to his painting.
The undeniable talent, the inventiveness, the spontaneity and the positive fervency are the principal vectors of Ott Neuens.“
