Works by Norbert Schwontkowski from his personal site and... Norbert Schwontkowski: Zip Code, works by Norbert Schwontkowski at Kerlin Gallery in Dublin, Ireland. "...Schwontkowski pictures operate very discreetly on the naivety of children's drawings, on the cleverness of caricatures and the power of a magical image. It is mostly simple figures and objects, man, woman, moon, lamp script, boats that dominate his works. They stand or drift in front of transitory colourful rooms, prepared to dissipate at any moment. A stream of emerging images, some melancholy, some ironic, which in silence bear witness to human existence. The artistic treatment of the matter - a mixture of substances consisting of litres of linseed oil, pulverised pigments, metal oxide, water, binding colours and bone glue, accentuate the scantiness and simplicity of the seized moments."
