Günter Zachariasen, born on the island of Sylt in 1937, has been living in North Frisia for decades. While he feels a strong connection to the land, landscape itself is not the motif of his paintings. Breaking away from the representational, his often monumental works are the abstract, yet sensual results of an exploration of the inner self. Zachariasen’s colour spectrums reflect vastness, openness and a dissolution of boundaries. Light plays a central role: Where does it come from? Is it penetrating thick fog? What distance has it travelled before it reaches our eyes? The application of paint is meticulous, the colouring gently tuned and carried by finely nuanced transitions, as if parts had the ability not only to accumulate light but also to emit it.
