graphite on paper
John Wieser (Salzburg – Austria), the self-taught artist started his professional career in 1993. Fascinated by the smallest details of nature, he delights in the entire process, from empty canvas to a thought provoking painting perfectly executed. Not satisfied with just reflecting nature with colors or pencil, he incorporates aesthetic harmony. The pencil as “equipment of the first hour” offers very many possibilities of the organization to him. From the sketch up to photo-realistic elaboration, high-contrast or only tenderly, from the running to the completely distinguished picture, of combined representations up to the finest detail is everything possible.
Particularly for commission-work, like Portraits and nude-artwork he recommends the pencil. No color, no brush does reach the exactness of a fine pencil point. A large advantage he sees also in the grey tones of Graphite, which permit the viewer to look more deeply the character of the explaining, without being diverted from colors.
In the Year 2002 the artist began to work more on his nude-pencil-drawings, always focused to connect aesthetics and naturalism done in a perfect artistic execution. At the time, his nude-series is one of the most important in this special technique in Europe!
