Gregor Pratneker lives and works in Maribor, Slovenia

STUDIO TIME @ Hotel Seevilla 28.4. - 5.5.

Landscapes that twist, turn, swirl and are torn apart. Or even merge with the sky and water or disappear behind cliffs. And there are also floods. This is how the unmistakable paintings of Gregor Pratneker from Slovenia appear. The artist sees the painting process as an access to his inner life and his own reactions to often gruelling global events. By moving paint over and around a surface, weather and geological processes become agents of change, affecting landforms that stem deep from his inner memories. In doing so, his art does not stroll through the landscape and describe moments, but captures processes that represent change and movement.
