ABOUT SVEN KALB

I HAVE KNOWN SVEN KALB FOR MAYBE
SEVEN YEARS AS A PAINTER AND COLLEAGUE.
WE HAVE OVER THE YEARS BECOME FRIENDS.
HE HAD STUDIED WITH RUDI TRÖGER WHOM
I FOLLOWED IN THE MUNICH ACADEMY. I SAY
THIS BECAUSE HIS POSITION IN PAINTING IS
DIFFERENT FROM MINE, WITH A FOCUS ON
DRAWING.
THIS HAS LED TO MANY DISCUSSION ABOUT ART
AN THEN OF COURSE PHILOSOPHY, CULTURE
AND LIFE. I RESPECT HIS SEARCH FOR INTEGRATING
THE FIGURE INTO THE PICTURE PLANE AND THEN
ALSO INTO PLASTIC FORM.
I AM ALWAYS SURPRISED HOW MUCH I LIKE
HIS WORK. IN HIS WORK IS A WIDE KNOWLEGE
OF OUR CULTURAL SITUATION.
WE WERE OFTEN DISCUSSING THESE CONTAMPORARY
ISSUES – WE LEARNED A LOT BY THIS WAY.
