Rainer Schoch (Thurgau – Switzerland). ,SPECIES OF FISH” – What makes the fish a work of art? The fish, a classic subject. whether as an image motif of early Christian art, as a symbol of life and fertility,or as a symbol of Christianity,the fish is still revered in many cultures and religions today.
As a theme of artistic debate, the fish enjoys timeless topicality, beyond epoches, art styles and expressive media. the compaction process often follows classical techniques, e.g. As a vanitasmotiv famous still life, as a subtle pictorial composition such as,, der Goldfisch” from 1925 by Paul Klee or damin Hirst^s tiger shark in formaldehyde, witch is regarsed as,,the”iconic work of the nineties. Here, too, contemporary developments and positions continue, or even go further, as the works of Rainer Schoch impressively illustrate.
