Do you also have wanderlust?
Similar to Kaspar David Friedrich, who at that time wanted to satisfy wanderlust in his homeland,
many people are in a similar situation today.
Let me tell you a secret:
Together with my son, I was allowed to satisfy my wanderlust in a fairytale place.
This time I didn't fly to India, New York or Scotland for this photograph.
Even though I can hardly wait to travel the world again.
For my son and me it goes today the first time together to the Baltic Sea.
Maybe you even know this place?
Let me take you to the " Ghost Forest".
Do not forget to take your childlike curiosity with you, because here we are dealing with a real fairy tale forest.
Some locals say that the forest is located,
"where the wind cuts the grass".
If you look closer you will notice that the sea wind bends the grasses until they look like they are all the same length.
By the way, the enduring oaks, beeches and ash trees are up to 170 years old and stand far apart.
Proud as harlequins in the wind.
No shrub, no flower can withstand the lashing of the salty and humid Baltic air.
Only the ghostly forest with its harlequins.
Perhaps you now suspect where these trees get their shape from?
Do you know, at dusk the fairy-tale and bizarre looking trees create a mystical atmosphere.
I wonder if there are mythical creatures hiding among the branches and twigs at night?
My son and I get closer to the cliff of this 1,300 meter long forest area.
Tripod, lenses and the Phase One medium format digital camera ready.
To finally make eternity and transience atmospherically tangible again.
I approach the cliff.
Slowly I get the feeling that I have stumbled upon a great scenery.
I pull out the camera.
I don't know exactly why, but the longer we linger there,
the more the unique rhythm of this place becomes palpable.
At some point, with the view of the sea and the steadily breaking cliff, the ravages of time become visible to us.
Don't you think that everything has its time?
But the art is
to endure while everything else comes and goes.
The challenges of time that teach us consistency, whether spring, summer, fall or winter.
When you want to grow and meager circumstances challenge you.
Just then to be in harmony with what is, despite all the hurdles.
That's what these enduring trees at the Baltic Sea symbolize for me.
This particular place of longing between Bad Doberan and Warnemünde I have particularly long exposure.
So the flowing Baltic Sea becomes soft and the persistent forest powerful.
I wonder if you noticed how these harlequins in the wind could enrich your life?
A symbol of serene constancy in the storm of the tides.
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.
