The paintings of David Schnell (*1971 in Bergisch Gladbach) are unique and unmistakable. His strongly architectural and foreshortening constructions, with their rigid sense of perspective, on the one hand call to mind traditional design and shapes, but on the other they symbolize a break with typical aesthetics. Through the use of irrational elements—“floating” objects, or buildings without any apparent stability—the artist ventures beyond the limits of ordinary visual representation. Recently Schnell’s works have been going in a somewhat different direction; the architectural features are dissolved yet further, while his exploration of the theme of landscape takes precedence. By employing the central perspective prominent in Renaissance art, the horizon becomes the fundamental element of the painting, both in terms of composition and content.This publication is the first to present a series of the artist’s newest works alongside a large selection of paintings from earlier years.
