Loving this series of majestic hair bun paintings by German painter Cornelius Völker. I would love to own one of his works.
With a distinctive method of handling paint that is simultaneously fluid and precise, German artist Cornelius Völker chooses traditional genres — the still-life and portraiture — to explore and decode the history of representational painting.
Frequently involving subject matter that was used by painters for centuries to best exhibit their proficiency — hair, hands, flesh, glass, food — Völker’s works blur traditional distinctions between genres, each painting becoming both a still life and a portrait. Whether or not actually figurative, nearly every work that Völker paints refers to the body: pills to ingest, ointments to rub into the skin, viscous fluids, cigarette stubs or half eaten fruit. – Hosfelt Gallery
