Raus.Project, founded by Wolfgang Günther


As a contemporary painter, Wolfgang Günther deals with his medium in an experimental way. He creates pictorial spaces on the canvas that are based on virtual dream worlds. In terms of content and form, his paintings offer an almost inexhaustible number of possible associations. Mythical creatures, plants, cells, loops, knots, structures pervade the pictorial events, which are based on obligatory perspectives, clear structures and a clear top-and-bottom constellation.

The eye is continuously in motion when viewing the pictures, and is led from one imaginary situation to another, from one imagined event to the next. Time and space become obsolete. Günther creates this intense movement with a sheer exuberance of signs, a variety of materials and innumerable overworked layers, which recognizably overlap and shine through, conceal or reveal each other. Their visual and implemented secrets can be docked onto, but they can never be fully exposed.
