Bernd Schwarzer is one of the most important German artists of the present. He is a thinker, a witness, and a portraitist of great historical changes. He is in a series with artists such as Georg Baselitz, Jörg Immendorff, Markus Lüpertz, Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, A.R. Penck and Joseph Beuys.
Bernd Schwarzer has been on the topic of Europe, German reunification and human rights for 40 years. It unites the visionary power in the EUROPAWERK.
Bernd Schwarzer shows early the social and political developments, which subsequently resulted in the German and European unification.
Bernd Schwarzer reflects the German history and the German-European presence as well as European ideas and cosmopolitanism. His work is of historical relevance and particular sensuality. The eruptive art with relief-like surfaces, provocative contrasts, the play of light & shadow and a unique luminosity of the colors are the characteristics of his art.
Bernd Schwarzer has been a painter since 1959 and created an enormously versatile work over the decades.
