ÜBER ANDRÉ WAGNER
André Wagner - Eine künstlerische Reflexion über Natur, Zeit und Spiritualität
Die fotografischen Inszenierungen von André Wagner zeugen von einem außergewöhnlichen Verständnis für die subtilen Verbindungen zwischen Natur, Zeit und Spiritualität. In seiner eindringlichen künstlerischen Praxis schöpft er aus diesen Elementen und lässt sich von ihnen inspirieren, um Werke von bemerkenswerter Tiefe und Schönheit zu schaffen.
Die Vergänglichkeit der materiellen Welt bildet den zentralen Fokus von Wagners Werk. Durch seine unvergleichliche Beobachtungsgabe manifestiert er die Schöpfung, den Verlauf der Zeit und den Verfall auf faszinierende Weise. Es ist in der majestätischen Natur, dass er die erstaunlichsten Ausdrucksformen dieser Erscheinungen findet. In der Betrachtung vedischer Schriften entdeckt Wagner eine philosophische Reflexion über dieses Thema, die unter dem Begriff "Guna" vereint wird. Diese Quelle der Inspiration bildet das Fundament seiner künstlerischen Reise, die er mit einem scharfen Sinn für ästhetische Intuition und kreativer Leidenschaft gestaltet.
Licht, Farben und die unausweichliche Präsenz der Zeit dienen als zentrale Werkzeuge in Wagners künstlerischer Inszenierung. Durch die bewusste Anwendung dieser Elemente schafft er eine sinnliche Erfahrung für den Betrachter, der in die Schönheit und Tiefgründigkeit seiner Werke eintaucht. In seiner einzigartigen Herangehensweise gelingt es ihm, die Verbindung zwischen Vergangenheit, Gegenwart und Zukunft zu enthüllen und das Mysterium der Zeit selbst darzustellen.
Während seiner ersten Reise nach Indien im Jahr 2004 wurde Wagner von einer erhabenen Passage aus einer heiligen Schrift tief berührt. Diese Worte, die besagen: "Um ihnen besondere Barmherzigkeit zu erweisen, zerstöre Ich, der Ich in ihren Herzen weile, mit der leuchtenden Fackel des Wissens die aus Unwissenheit geborene Finsternis", eröffneten ihm eine neue Dimension der Wahrnehmung und beeinflussten fortan seine künstlerische Entwicklung.
In den fotografischen Werken von André Wagner offenbart sich die Essenz der Natur, der Zeit und der Spiritualität. Seine Inszenierungen zeugen von der Zyklik des Lebens und laden den Betrachter ein, in eine Welt der Reflexion und Transzendenz einzutauchen. Durch die visuelle Sprache der Fotografie entzündet Wagner die leuchtende Fackel des Wissens und eröffnet neue Wege des Verstehens. Seine Werke sind ein inspirierender Ruf, die Dunkelheit der Unwissenheit zu überwinden und eine tiefere Verbindung mit der Welt um uns herum zu erforschen.

ÜBER ANDRÉ WAGNER FOTOGRAFIE
"My art is an anchor for me and I would be happy if I could inspire you with my photographic art as well."
Born in Burgstädt on July 12, 1980
2020 Member of the German Society for Photography
Mr. Wagner, thank you so much for having us. May we get personal?
AW: (laughs) Yes, of course. Shoot!
Well then, let's start from the beginning: Did you have what you call a happy childhood?
AW: Yes well... In my family, unfortunately, everything always revolved around father's business. Unfortunately, that left little room for me. Only so much: To go on vacation, for example, there was never time. However, my mother had recognized my creative streak very early and always encouraged me. Even my first camera was a gift from her.
What did you do in your free time or in the afternoons after school?
AW: I was out and about with friends a lot. In the nearby forest I found my little bit of freedom and my own space back then.
Your works give the impression: Are you religious?
AW: A clumsy village priest drove out my attempted approach to spirituality. But a hard blow of fate steered me early on to thoughts around the meaning of being and passing, time and eternity.
May I ask what that stroke of fate was?
AW: There was a terrible traffic accident that took away three of my best friends in one fell swoop. It was quite horrible!
Besides the pain, what did that mean to you?
AW: It made me completely lose my footing. The day before we had played football together. And suddenly everything I had left of my friends was gone. Only a few photographs remained and, thanks to them, the memories. The fear of losing someone and then having nothing left of them moved me to photograph my friends in the aftermath. I wanted to capture them all for eternity.
I read that you were a graffiti sprayer.
AW: Yes, that's true, but legally! (laughs) Spraying graffiti gave me a new frame and space for my energies. Since the loss of my friends, my subconscious was dealing with the questions of impermanence, eternity, time and our place in it.
Legal graffiti, is there such a thing?
AW: Yes, it does. And even paid for. I guess they weren't all bad either, because both in my school and in other projects I experienced first artistic recognition. In the process I was able to develop and implement my very own idea of colors, shapes, some of which still accompany me in my photography today.
And how did you get into photography?
AW: My childhood trauma, the fear of losing everything, ultimately brought me to photography. I wanted to capture everything. My parents insisted on a manual apprenticeship, which I also slogged through for months. I felt like a fish in the desert.
AW: After half a year of feeling like I was in the wrong movie, I got lucky because a photographer and oil painter liked my graffiti pictures. I was able to start the much desired photographer training after six months of internship with him, even though at that time studio photography seemed extremely boring to me in its design and approach. I could not see any creative approach for me in such work
But surely that has changed?
AW: Well, I just experimented with unusual subjects and situations in my spare time. For example, in my second year of teaching (2000) I applied for the German Youth Photography Award with a picture of a sprayer friend, whom I had taken naked in front of Karl Marx Head at night at -20 degrees. I won the second prize (combined with exhibitions at the Photokina and the Martin Gropius Bau).
Great! How do you create your pictures?
AW: You won't see me chasing anything with a camera around my neck. It's the other way around. I have to be emotionally touched by a "something", I have to feel it. With the help of photography I can express the emotions that a situation has triggered in me and I can capture them over time. Therefore, I am particularly fascinated by places and situations that radiate something pure or powerful to me. Thanks to my well-founded training, it is then possible for me to transform this feeling - sometimes with very elaborate preparation - into a picture idea and ultimately to implement it in a technically perfect way. Each work tells a unique story, captured in a moment of infinity.
Whow! Where do you find such emotions?
AW: I feel these emotions especially often when I leave my comfort zone. This is why I love to travel, especially places that feel unfamiliar and where I hope to find adventure and insight. In particular, I am fascinated by Asian culture and tradition.
Many of your photographs are impressive and mystical nature shots. Why?
AW: I am always surprised by nature, which gifts us with inexhaustible inspiration. I had already mentioned that the mysticism of time is an important aspect for me and consequently for my work. Have you ever realized that we can only perceive time through remembering? Without remembering the past second, last summer, or events in the past, we cannot have a sense of time either. Many of my works, as well as my series, such as "Romance of Elements" or "Time Flies" deal with the movement of time and ask questions about our fast-paced society:
Who am I? Am I the body, am I my spirit, am I the soul?
What is left of me when the body dissolves in time?
What if people identify their lives by having, not by being?
These questions never leave me and so these spiritual aspects of eternity, being and time are found in my works. Time, spirituality and nature belong together for me as if they were siblings. Since my childhood days in the forest, nature is for me nothing existing outside of myself, but I feel as a part of a great whole. In my photographic work I will always take up and question these aspects. In particular, I have always been fascinated by time. What meaning does it have in general and specifically for us as individuals? Can we understand it? How I would love to decipher the essence of time.
Yourimages are alsosometimes photographically very different from what we see every day. Some of them make me wonder how they came to be.
AW: Yes, in some cases I actually developed my own new techniques and approaches as well as mental perspectives. Always to make my thoughts and feelings visible in my artistic photography. You know, a successful photograph has to trigger emotions, it should be an anchor for the viewer, just as it was for me in my time of disorientation.

Why are the works of André Wagner limited?
The photographs of André Wagner are art and not mass-produced. Therefore, all works are limited to a few pieces (usually 5). So you get a real original, signed by hand and with certificate of authenticity and ownership.
What is an Open Edition?
Open Editions are mass produced and are neither certified nor signed. They can be reproduced practically infinitely and are usually only available in a defined size. André Wagner only offers Open Editions of a few motifs in order to make his art accessible to a broad public at a reasonable price.
What does "Make an Offer" mean?
Make an Offer means that you can make an offer to buy a particular artwork or series. It may be that the price of the work exceeds your current budget. In this case, please submit an alternative offer for the desired photograph to André Wagner. The artist will contact you immediately. Of course, your purchase offer does not constitute a valid purchase contract until your offer has been accepted by André Wagner.
What is my Wish-List for
If one of André Wagner's photographs has particularly touched you, you can save it in your Wish-List without any obligation. No obligation arises from this, also in the future. The Wish-List serves only for your own memory, so that you do not lose your favorite(s) from the eyes and from the heart.
What does Bestseller, Last Print and Gallery Only mean?
A photograph becomes a Bestseller when half of the edition has already been sold. This means that the price increases for the works that are still available. The Last Print is practically the last image that can be purchased and usually costs twice the price of the first image in the edition.
Gallery Only are the so called exhibition prints, which are works that have been made especially for an exhibition. The Gallery Only works are stored in André Wagner's studio and, since they are not absolutely new, can be purchased at a preferential price.
What is meant by an exhibition print?
Exhibition prints, also called Gallery Only, are works made especially for exhibitions. After the exhibitions, the exhibition prints are stored in André Wagner's studio. The corresponding works are undamaged and in perfect condition, but just not absolutely new. If you are interested, you can make an appointment in the studio, view these works and purchase them. Since they have already been shown and are no longer new, they are available at a preferential price.
What is a certificate?
When you send us your artwork, you will receive, among other things, a certificate about the work. On this certificate of authenticity the rightful ownership of the artwork in your name and the serial number (e.g. the third print out of five possible worldwide) are certified. Furthermore, the certificate bears the original signature of the artist. Storage in a safe place (safe) is recommended.
In what sizes are the works available?
You can see the available sizes when ordering on the respective page of the online exhibition. If you want a format that is not offered, please write a short mail. André Wagner will then contact you personally.
Can I have the selected photograph framed?
Of course you can have your work framed. Whether shadow gap frame, with passe-partout or even very unusual wishes, everything is possible. Contact André Wagner and make your artwork a very special one.
What do I get delivered?
First of all, you will receive by courier, of course, your selected photograph in the format you ordered and the desired finish in a special transport box. Unless you have specifically ordered a different version, you will receive a razor-sharp real photo, exposed, waveless and flawlessly flat mounted on an aluminum-plastic-aluminum plate (Aludibond), sealed with acrylic glass. A composite that stands out for its luxurious elegance and extremely long durability. Whether the surface should be high-gloss or matt, you have already decided in the ordering process. The perfect finishing is absolutely convincing. A complete professional aluminum hanging system for safe suspension is already attached to the artwork.
In a separate shipment for security reasons, André Wagner will send you a few days beforehand the certificate of authenticity that belongs to the artwork, the hand-signed authenticity sticker that you please stick on the back of the work before hanging it, tips as well as dowels and screws for safe hanging on a stone wall and care instructions to preserve the value of your artwork.
What is the finishing of the selected photograph?
The standard of André Wagner's works are crisply exposed real photographs, which are mounted without waves or bubbles on an aluminum-plastic-aluminum plate (Aludibond) and sealed with matte or high-gloss acrylic glass. A composite that stands out for its luxurious elegance and extremely long durability.
Can I choose a finish other than Aludibond/acrylic?
Of course. Contact André Wagner and choose the finishing that suits you best. From the simplest print to elaborate acoustic images and underwater finishes, anything is possible.
What does a work of art by André Wagner cost?
Since André Wagner does not sell mass-produced artwork, there are no standard prices. The prices vary per motif and depend above all on the selected size and the number of strictly limited copies still available.
Is a customer account necessary to purchase an artwork?
No. You select the desired motif and the corresponding size in the gallery and if you have no other special requests, you can order directly.
Will I receive a confirmation of my purchase?
Of course you will. You will receive a corresponding e-mail immediately after your purchase and then also a confirmation of purchase by mail.
How can I pay for my order?
You can pay for artwork with the usual payment methods. Both VISA and Mastercard, bank transfer, Bitcoin or PayPal.
Is the online payment secure?
Every transaction is SSL-encrypted and thus complies with the most modern security standards for online purchases. In addition, the two-factor identification PSD2 (3D Secure) is carried out for credit card payments.
Can I purchase a voucher?
Of course you can purchase a voucher in any amount. The purchased vouchers are valid for three years from the date of issue according to the law. Please feel free to contact André Wagner. If you have a specific artwork in mind, please note that its price may change (see What does Bestseller, Last Print and Gallery Only mean?).
Exchange, revocation and return
André Wagner guarantees that your artwork will arrive completely intact and in the promised premium quality.
For exhibition prints, which can be viewed in the studio, a right of exchange of 14 days applies.
For works not in stock in the studio, there is unfortunately no such right of exchange, as these are produced specifically on customer request. This is because ordered paintings that are not in stock in the studio are products that are produced according to customer specifications, so that the consumer's right to revoke a distance contract is excluded, § 312d paragraph 4 No. 1 BGB.
I would like to revoke or change my purchase
Except if it is a Gallery Only or exhibition print, neither a change of format, motif, cancellation or revocation of the purchase are possible. Please note that with your order, the factory is automatically entered into production and ordered images are products made to customer specifications, so that the consumer's right to revoke a distance contract is unfortunately excluded, § 312d paragraph 4 No. 1 BGB.
How safe is the delivery?
The transport takes place in a special, so-called ArtSecurity packaging. This is specially optimized for works of art to prevent damage such as breakage, dents or scratches during transport. Your artwork will be delivered by DHL directly to the given address.
What happens if I receive my work damaged?
In the extremely unlikely event that, despite special packaging, your artwork arrives damaged, we distinguish between two cases:
If the damage is already visible from the outside, please document the damage (cell phone photo is sufficient) and do not accept the shipment.
If damage only becomes visible after opening the packaging, please also document it extensively and please report the damage immediately, at the latest within one week.
In both cases André Wagner will find a solution for you as soon as possible.
How much are the shipping costs?
Both the ArtSecurity packaging and the shipping to the address you specify within Germany are included in the purchase price. For shipping within Europe, to Switzerland and worldwide shipping there are small surcharges, depending on the size between 15 and 85€. In addition, there may be country-specific customs duties.
When can I expect the delivery?
Within Germany, please allow approximately 7-14 days for production and delivery. Within Europe you can expect your artwork in 14-21 days. If your desired delivery address is outside of Europe, please allow 21-28 days.
Can I pick up my work at the gallery?
In principle, you can of course pick up your work in person at the gallery. However, this is not recommended, as the entire transport risk is transferred to you at the moment of pickup, thus excluding any subsequent warranty claims. Please also take into account the size of your artwork, which often makes easy transport considerably more difficult.
How do I hang my artwork safely on the wall?
Your work of art will reach you prepared for wall mounting. A complete professional aluminum hanging system is already attached directly to the artwork for secure hanging. In addition, you will receive dowels and screws for safe hanging on a stone wall. From unpacking to hanging, assistance from another adult is generally recommended.
Does André Wagner offer help with hanging?
Especially for large and heavy artworks or pictures with special functions like acoustic or underwater pictures, professional help with the installation is recommended. Within Germany and Switzerland, André Wagner offers a package for the insured and professional hanging of his artworks. Please feel free to ask us.
What happens if something happens to my artwork?
If something happens to your work of art (robbery, fire, water damage, mechanical damage, ...), you will receive a replacement upon submission of appropriate evidence (police report, photos, etc.). The reason of destruction does not matter. You only pay the pure production and delivery costs plus a small handling fee.
