The story  behind the painting:

Disappearances 1.  Is there anything left to say about life and death and human condition since William Faulkner? Is there any Light or Sea or Sky left to be painted since William Turner? Yes, all you have to do is open yourself to the Beauty and then Disappear.  (Allois and Jörge)

Disappearances 10

Disappearances 10, 2015, oil on gesso panel, 40″ x 30″, private collection

The story  behind the painting:

Disappearances 10.  Is there a wall between Dreams and Reality? How does the everyday existence reflects itself onto the Dream? When exactly do Dreams come to life? What is that moment when our sand castles stop growing out of the dreamscapes, when do our morning stars collide into one blinding Sun? At this fleeting moment we can be whole again.  (Allois and Jörge)


Disappearances 15

Disappearances 15: Flying Dutchman, 2015, oil on canvas, 48″ x 36″, framed

The story  behind the painting:

It’s a wonderful world and its a beautiful life! Throw away your sarcasm, stop crawling back and forth through the looking glass. Look through the wave, feel the wind, get burned by the Sun! Leave the deeply rooted and heavily anchored behind. There is no peace in quiet harbors, there is no kindness among the indifferent, there is no safety in their numbers. You will be saved by those who sail beyond the horizon, try and catch up with them.

Disappearances 6: Ghost, 2015, oil on gesso panel, 24″ x 18″, private collection

Flying Dutchman is pounded by the waves of Indifference, its sails are torn by the furies of Envy and Agitation. Perseverance is its only strength, Love is its only salvation. Is there anything Flying Dutchman transmits to all of us, so deeply and safely rooted into our never-ending routine?… It does, but transmission goes unnoticed. Only those who set their goals and follow their dreams as if their life depends on it, only selected few who solved the Secret and realized that they are Alive, they get the message. They are invited aboard… (Allois and Jörge)
