This large-sized painting by Norbert Bisky shows a windblown young blond boy facing a stormy beach landscape. The figure in the foreground corresponds to the personae Bisky typically uses in his paintings - a beautiful, handsome young man, prone to evoke a certain voyeurism in the viewer.
Bisky finds gestures and figures in the street, in advertisements, in the observation of city life, as well as in his extensive travels which nourish his imagination with impressions from other parts of the globe. The situations in which he places the figures draw on news items: storm and flood disasters in Louisiana or Pakistan, earthquakes in Haiti or large fires around Moscow. Being exposed to Bisky‘s large-scale canvases creates a sense of being drawn into the forceful events they represent. All of his paintings contain, in the words of the artist, a religious nucleus of Christian ideology, art history, gay culture, pornography and apocalyptic visions.
Raised in former East Germany, Norbert Bisky belonged to the last generation to grow up under East German totalitarism. He decided to become an artist upon the fall of the Berlin Wall. Influenced in part by the propagandistic Socialist Realist imagery with which he grew up, Bisky stated: “For an artist it is fascinating to have a world in your mind [that] does not exist anymore. I grew up with all these images of happy people, all these religious promises. [. . .] It has a lot to do with my work because I try to paint those images of paradise and to see if it could really live up to the promise.”
