Sven Kroner

Sven Kroner is German artist creating monumental dramatic landscapes. There is clearly a link here to the german romantic tradition of David Caspar Friedrich and others. In almost every piece the world is portrayed as a vast and mysterious place, in which the human presence seems tenuous at best, barely hanging on to the rough skin of this planet. Kroner's work reminds us of this, and that our ultimate success may still be short-lived. The scale and force of nature remains far beyond our control, even our full understanding. LINK svenkroner
