Thomas Riesner, a trained printer, is self-taught and heavily involved in painting since 1990. Besides paintings in acrylic and ink. The drypoint is one of his means of artistic expression.
Expressive and intuitive.
In a good mood from top to bottom. Riesner can lead his fellows into a moment of carefree laughter. Quite spontaneously and abruptly, it literally springs from him. Laughter as well as his ideas for concrete image patterns on paper and canvas. His expressive and intuitive painting style is reflected in his seemingly archaic figures and pictorial elements. His images exude an atmosphere of originality and spontaneity. Although most of the patterns show torture, death, murder, rape, disease, and ritual cruelty.
