ABOUT THE ARTIST
Stefan a Wengen, born in Switzerland and now based in Düsseldorf, deals in his oppressive and atmoshperically charged paintings with cultural codes. As such are the disconcerting and the alien in his art a consistent source for his image findings. At the core of his work are the uncanny, the phenomenon of fear and the various layers of subconsciousness. From the formal point of view are his paintings based on the media of film and documentary photography. The old pictorial genre of the portrait, always unsettling a Wengens work, also occupies an important place.
