“Actually, I always paint in the subjunctive mode:”, says Holger Bunk. His paintings often show himself, self-portraits in an environment determined by architecture. They are rarely pure landscapes, but contain traces of human activity. He looks out of the picture like an introverted and thoughtful being . He meets and seizes the viewers’ gaze and imperceptibly draws them into the image. The activities, events, actions and circumstances of the depicted characters in his works cannot be clearly determined, but instead remain ambiguous.
