Background Information about Sven Pfrommer

Introduction

In his series East by West, Sven Pfrommer takes us on a journey across the United States. His colourful images celebrate feelings of freedom and adventure. We drive along the palm-tree-lined Sunset Boulevard against the setting sun, before heading on to Chicago and downtown Manhattan.

The mixed media collages, with their unique pop-art flair, were created from photos, print graphics, and painting. With layers of different urban fragments, the images appear dynamic and in flux. Through this approach, the artist succeeds in capturing the diverse sights, sounds, and sensations of a road trip in his expressive images.

Well-known symbols, highways signs, and characteristic lettering – Pfrommer utilizes shapes that are recognisable to us and, in doing so, captures the essence of the different locations. Graphic precision clashes with the untamed spirit of abstract painting to produce energetic and intense perceptual experiences.
