Interview with Reinhard Stammer

BY Simionescu Simona

– Hello, Reinhard!
– Hello, Simona!

What are your preferred themes?
I prefer themes that are coming directly from my heart or soul. Maybe it’s a little bit spiritual, but not esoteric.

Where do you get your ideas from?
I also don’t know it exactly. But there are no ideas. If there is an idea, I am sure, that nothing like that will happen.
I am now 62 years old and had had a lot of extreme experiences in my long life. These may be the source of my paintings.
I am interested in the Advaita (for example Ramesh Balsekar, Nisargadatta Maharaj) Philosophy and in Zen Buddhism.
So I know, that the strong ego an artist has usually, has to be reduced while painting.
So I try to be not proud about my artwork, but I am mostly happy with the incurred artwork.

What inspires you?
I don’t know. Because I feel that my artwork comes up spontaneously, without any concept, without any plan I always say to a newborn art-baby: Hi, here you are I invited you not knowing who will follow my invitation.

What is the most beautiful memory that you keep of your artist’s career?
The most beautiful memory is the moment, when I feel, that I am not the painter- that painting happens through me.

Of what do you think when you paint?
Sometimes I get angry and of course about nothing happens, sometimes I am fulfilled with my situation to do this wonderful kind of, let me say: therapy or path of knowledge.
It’s a way into the inner world of human being.

How would you define your art?
Little bit crazy, constructive and destructive, humorist and serious, spiritual and material abstract and non abstract… A wide spectrum.

Who is interested in your paintings?
Mostly people who are touched deeply in their soul or heart by my artwork. I am not a good artisan. Then I would not have any chance to live like an artist in earlier times. May be I would be a knight, smith, Casanova or something else.

Which techniques do you use as a painter?
I use all materials. Mostly oil colors, bitumen and sometimes acrylic, pigments, flour, cement and anything else what is surrounding me.

Who are the painters you admire?
Goya, Rembrandt, Cezanne, Matisse, van Gogh, Schiele, Picasso, Modigliani, Pollock, Warhol, Basquiat, Twombly and many others.
I feel influenced by the whole world of art.

What are your other interests in life?

Life as it is. But I love to travel and to see other people and countries. Want to do a desert retreat, stay for some times in a rainforest and so on…some crazy things.

How do you see your painting in the coming years?
They will be famous…
