Rainer Fetting. VOLTA Basel

 

Rainer Fetting became internationally known with his expressive-figurative paintings at the end of the 1970s as one of the most important protagonists of the so-called "Junge Wilden", a group of German painters in West Berlin who used painting to oppose the then prevailing abstract and conceptual tendencies in art. The encounter with the works of various artists of the New York School was particularly formative for Fetting's painting. Above all, he uses artistic principles such as Willem De Kooning's distinctive painterly gestures or Jackson Pollock's famous color drippings for his expressive handling of figurative motifs. Although Fetting's paintings do not purely focus on the effect of color, like Mark Rothko's famous color field paintings, they do often play with the conveyed emotionality of the chosen color in his compositions.

The artist is inspired, among other things, by the places where he himself likes to be and often stays, as for the works "Surfer - Gang zum Meer" and "Surfer Sylt" the North Frisian island of Sylt, where Fetting has a studio.
