Painting with very fine and concise brushstrokes, I examine/explore the classic image concepts (landscape, still life and cityscape). Although photos are used as a starting point in the painting process, the intention is not to fool the eye but to create images that are coherent and self-contained, allowing space for interpretation. So the goal is to achieve a strong and independent visual idea, not a slavish copy. ~Christoph EberleHaving grown up in Switzerland, I cherish one of the scarcest goods in this country: sunshine. Light and heat are for many months in short supply. Therefore light has become an important element in my paintings. The way the light pours over objects, as it defines the object as a body, what area it emphasizes and what disappears in the shadows are common themes throughout my works. In particular the shadows that live,softly vibrating in the dimmed light and give the picture composition grip and provide the motives with volume.
