Artist Statement Ulrich de Balbian

Ulrich has ateliers in several countries.

The Right Reverend Dr Ulrich de Balbian Verster; research western painterly techniques and the structures of the western painterly code or discourse through the ages; especially interested in Bauhaus, Klee, Kandinsky, Picasso, Expressionists, some Impressionists such as Monet, and the contemporary artists influenced by them. In every work of mine I share with you one aspect of my aesthetic ideals and vision. Principles and factors that hopefully will introduce eternally lasting qualities into and transform the discourse of painting, like the works of the handful of serious artists have done over the ages. Lectured and published books and articles in philosophy (eg ontology and epistemology), theology, world religions, art, social sciences and other subjects. Spiritually (or theologically) especially interested in the mystical traditions (of prayer, contemplation and thesis or the unity experience)in Christianity (Western, Eastern and Oriental Orthodoxy), Vedanta's self-realization, Buddhism's satori, Sufism.

WE are in the process of replacing all images with much improved images to depict the subtle details, colors, etc, and thus do justice to the work. ] The words on his tombstone, Klee's credo, placed there by his son Felix, say, "I cannot be grasped in the here and now, For my dwelling place is as much among the dead, As the yet unborn, Slightly closer to the heart of creation than usual, But still not close enough."

“ Art does not reproduce the visible; rather, it makes visible. ”

—Paul Klee. I share with you in every painting some aspects of my aesthetic ideals and vision, things that are eternal, lasting, permanent and universal, transcending time, space, societies and cultures....
