The Tree

by Christian Klute

Unique art|24.8 x 39 in

I liked the sillouette of a tree I photographed, but I wanted to make it more interesting as a painting... I glued various steel plates in upon each other, so they formed the basic shape of the tree and then painted the sillouette in many layers on them, to achieve this subtle and nebulous radiance.

My main focus lies on detailed portraitart with a slightly twisted, dark touch.

Elderly human faces, radiating some kind of depth and fragmentation are my biggest inspiration.

I try to capture the essence of these subtle emotions by combining traditional realism with a more impressionistic, abstract approach.

Love it. Hate it.
