„Ecstasy and loss. Who better to describe the ambivalence between the creative process and the finished works of Christian Schoeler’s oeuvre than the painter himself? It all begins with the un-restrained, ecstatic, and virtuoso process – when the turpentine added to the paint becomes flesh and blood.
Nothing happens by chance, in every brush stroke is an intention of the artist. In the end, however, what comes into being reflects the utmost sensitivity.“
