Private pictures into works of art

In his cycle “Life is but a memory” TW experiments with private snapshots – with his own, those of his collectors, or pictures from lots he finds at fleamarkets.

The individual images belonging to one person or family are mounted inside each other and overlapping; places and people that had no connection in the separate images thus enter into new relationships. Fragments of what was once real are – using the visual language of the Elusionistic Art TW cultivates – reassembled in a new way.

A fictional world is opened to the viewer – no matter whether he was familiar with the images used in their original form or not.

Nobody Knows You, 2015


HOME_Nobody knows you_Montage_960x320

Names beside doorbells, faded and peeling away; chapped writing once so carefully placed, the final witnesses to an earlier time. It is deadly quiet in this street, the entrances are bricked up, not a sound can escape; in places where people lived, loved, fought; where children raced down the hill making such a din. Their farewell was yesterday – forwarding address unknown.

On 13th June 2015, to benefit the project Schulbausteine für Gando (“School Building Bricks for Gando”), the Rotary Club Berlin Gedächtniskirche will be running a first art auction for charity in collaboration with its partner clubs RC Paris Concorde and RC Zürich Adlisberg. In addition to artworks by Dieter Appelt, Joseph Beuys, Will Mc Bride, Robert Lebeck, Katharina Sieverding, Andreas Muhs and many others, one work by Torsten Warmuth will also be up for auction. The profits made from the auction will be used to finance a well in Gando.
