"What composers do with music, poets with words, I wish with my paintings: inspire people and create emotions. I want to trigger impulses that make the soul of the viewer vibrate"

Volker Mayr - bildender Künstler, visual artist   

Volker lives and works in
Berlin. He was taught by his grandfather, the german painter Otto Glossmann and
has been painting since his childhood.

In the beginning of his
art career he started with realistic painting. Since 1985 non-figurative works
predominate with references to abstract expressionism. Volker´s works are
mostly oil on canvas or paper. Considerable place take gouaches with oil crayons. 


The art
historian Gerhard Charles Rump said about Volker Mayr:

"Mayrs paintings in
their combination of painterly gestures and visible structures of the colour
mass are remarkable, the colours themselves, their tones. They move in rarely
explored areas, do not jump at the viewer, but require sensitive approach and a
willingness to see them with patience to see all traces of nuances. Images as
they are dynamic in origin and have a form of inventory, that makes a
meditative element.“ 

 



Volker
Mayr is in the collections of German Bank, Vattenfall Energy,
Jakob-Kaiser-Stiftung and Bristol- Kempinski Berlin. 


Kunst gehört für Volker Mayr zu den schönsten Möglichkeiten, Gefühle auszudrücken und zu erzeugen. Was Komponisten mit Musik, möchte er mit  Bildern: Die Seele der Betrachter zum Schwingen bringen (frei nach Antoni Tapiès) – also Emotionen auslösen.

Seit 1985 malt Volker Mayr im Stil des abstrakten Expressionismus. Er bietet Betrachtern die größtmögliche Freiheit der eigenen Interpretation.

Im Mittelpunkt stehen die Arbeiten in Öl auf Leinwand. Breiten Raum nehmen die Gouachen ein, meist als Mischtechnik durch zusätzliche Verwendung von Ölkreide und Pastellstift. 

Volker Mayr ist vertreten in den Sammlungen von Deutscher Bank und Vattenfall, mit Graphiken im Berliner Hotel Bristol-Kempinski und mit einem Triptychon im Jakob-Kaiser-Haus.
