Michael Hedwig Painter

Michael Hedwig Profil

Coming from a large family I am biased with a certain preference for group pictures. My way of thinking and working is directed towards the community, the collective, the group. The individual then experiences its potential when it learns to perceive its significance in the group, recognizes it and contributes to the community in an unadulterated manner. My image concepts are self-reliant and inevitably point to the need to cultivate mental faculties and develop loving compassion. Last but not least, I understand my art as an indication of the overcoming of preconceptions, irrational fears and populism.
