The timeless work "Descending to Yamuna River" was created during my stay in India at the sacred river Yamuna.
The Yamuna is attributed great importance in Indian mythology. Ancient accounts tell that the river originally originated from the Ghaggar River. However, this changed its direction over the years. It owes its name to the goddess Yamuna, also known as Yami or later Kalinda (the Dark One).
Legends tell that this legendary place was blessed by Krishna, who fell into the waters as a baby. This gave rise to a popular belief: people who immerse themselves in the sacred waters are healed and spared from sickness, death and fear.
During my trip to India, I visited this spiritual and mythical place. Once there, I was able to experience and capture some wonderful moments.
I would like to tell you a story about one of these moments:
A few hours before sunrise, my wife and I set out to visit the seaside resort of Keshi Ghat on the pier of the Yamuna.
On arriving there, we spotted a beautiful temple and stone steps leading down to the bank of the sacred river.
Although it was before dawn, many people were already gathered to perform their religious rituals.
This fascinating sight radiated an incredible calm.
Overwhelmed by the atmosphere, I walked thoughtfully down the steps to the bank of the Yamuna. Brightly colored flowers from previous offerings lay everywhere and deep mist hung in the air. Men and women dressed in gorgeous traditional robes strode past me, introverted.
I felt this moment was magical and wanted to capture it completely authentically.
Luckily for me, everyone present was deep in thought and in a world where I did not exist.
In seconds, I positioned myself at the edge of the stairs and purposefully pressed the shutter button. I managed to immortalize this breathtaking sight unaltered.
This work takes you far away from your everyday life. It accompanies you to a place where faith is lived.
Through him hope is created. For he gives us humans the certainty that everything will be fine.
The best is just good enough
Once on the wall, it's like love at first sight! The eyes glide lovingly over the perfect surface of the acrylic glass. The treasure is firmly attached to it and, as it were, enclosed. Even in mega-format, a pin-sharp real photo is exposed. Glued without waves and flawlessly even onto an aluminium-plastic-aluminium plate (Aludibond), which guarantees the artwork optimum rigidity, stability and durability.
This combination of Aludibond, photography, UV protection and acrylic glass creates an inseparable bond, which is characterised by its luxurious elegance and extremely long durability.
The surface can be produced in a high-gloss finish or, on request, in a matt finish. It is idle to try to find a flaw in this indescribably high-quality structure. The perfect finish is simply breathtaking. It is hard to tear oneself away.
A special picture needs a special frame - or does it?
If you have purchased a work by André Wagner, it will change your room. No one can escape the powerful impact that the picture's message triggers.
There is deliberately no frame used. Not to follow a trend in the stream of time, but to not let anything distract the effect of the photograph on the room.
Should you nevertheless wish a frame, I will be happy to advise you.
Durable premium quality
The vibrant colours and high tonal richness achievable through large format exposure on premium photographic paper are unparalleled. Both the magical depth effect of the acrylic glass and the brilliant detail achieved on real photographic paper lend the artworks a mysterious allure.
Due to the chosen production method, the highest gallery quality is achieved, which even allows the issuing of a lifetime guarantee also for the colours and contrasts.
Transport, hanging and guarantee
The transport takes place in a special, so-called ArtSecurity packaging. This is specially optimised for works of art to prevent damage such as breakage, dents or scratches during transport.
Included in the delivery is a complete professional hanging system made of aluminium, which is already attached to the artwork. This allows you to hang your new artwork easily and most importantly safely.
I guarantee that your artwork will arrive completely intact and in the promised premium quality. But I go one step further: If something happens to your artwork due to an accident, you will get it replaced. The reason for the destruction is irrelevant. You only pay the pure production and delivery costs plus a small handling fee.
The authenticity of your artwork will be confirmed to you upon delivery with a serial sticker signed by me. Since the works are limited, you will find on this sticker, in addition to the size, the number of the work, for example 2/5 (the second copy of an edition of 5 pieces worldwide). I will also gladly issue you an additional certificate of authenticity.
And now enjoy your new work of art for all eternity, which will be the envy of every visitor, whether you like it or not.
