David Benedikt Wirth

In his artistic practice, David Benedikt Wirth refers to his own image archive to explore themes of society and culture, looking at the relationship between human beings and environment, and all that brings and holds us together. His works grasp the viewer’s eye, challenging them to understand the unforeseen that lives within them. The images create an interface between a presence of their obvious and a latency of their meaning. His careful, naturalistic painting technique evokes those specific layers that convey feelings of temporality as well as liveliness.
