Time has fascinated me since time immemorial. What meaning does it have in general and specifically for us as individuals? Can we understand it?
How I would love to decipher the origin of time. And what role does spirituality play in the world of our lives?
I offer to join you on your tour of the gallery in exotic places and very special situations to explore this great question.
- ANDRÉ WAGNER
When I saw "Pilgrim family" for the first time, I knew: This painting is a gate, a 'Gate to India'. André Wagner's works have this mysterious effect of opening up spaces in which they hang - expanding spaces - connecting dimensions. Space and time he dissolves. With his sensitive eye for the quality of light, the quality of colour and the quality of timing, he makes visible something that is actually invisible:
The sacredness - the deep spirituality of an extremely mundane and everyday moment.
I am always grateful for the reminder of this as I look at the work in my home.
I have been enjoying your art for almost two decades now. Soon I will have to look for a larger living space, as your most recently purchased painting is still sitting around packed. The painting "Dimension Door" is my absolute favorite. It hangs right across from where I work. And whenever the German bureaucracy gets on my nerves again - very rarely ;-)))- I look at your picture and then I go on happily and relaxed. Already today I am looking forward to your next works.
It was important to us to soften the sterile, businesslike atmosphere of the operating room with a calming nature scene. We were explicitly looking for a birch forest motif and needed a high-resolution quality. During our research we came across André Wagner, a direct hit. The format of the photo wall does not give the impression of a picture, rather the room opens virtually into a birch forest. It is bright and friendly, inviting. We often experience that patients suddenly lose all tension when they enter the room and are just amazed. Many thanks for this splendid picture, it always delights us anew.

Schlafpraxis Berlin is a practice for outpatient sleep medicine and psychosomatics. This means that we are equally concerned with body and soul (psyche). Therefore, it is important to us to design the rooms inviting and as little clinical and sterile as possible. Large, light-flooded rooms in old buildings have been contributing to a relaxed atmosphere for years. But large rooms also mean many square metres of white walls. André Wagner has finally breathed life and warmth into these spaces that they deserve, so that they do justice to our practice concept. André is an artist for whom the work doesn't stop after the shutter is pressed. He captures his clients humanly, professionally and artistically and creates spatial concepts together with them. Large scale nature paintings now create a comforting atmosphere and through that a place where we and our patients can feel comfortable, safe and secure.
