Portrait
Christian Voigt

Deutsch

Der Hamburger Künstler Christian Voigt (*1961) findet auf seinen unzähligen Reisen Motive die uns ins Staunen versetzen. Seine monumentalen Fotografien lassen den Betrachter in andere Welten abtauchen und haben nicht selten etwas Mystisches an sich. Während man den Rest seiner Umgebung vergisst verliert man sich in Landschaften, authentischen Lebenskulturen oder historischenArchitekturen (siehe BaroqueBibliotheque, BaroqueLibrary Hall, Prado, ect.). Der Bann in den uns die Kunstwerke ziehen lässt den Betrachter leicht vergessen welche Mühen und langfristige Planungen solche Aufnahmen mit sich bringen. Genehmigungen und Arbeiten bei Nacht unter enormen Zeitdruck setzen eine Leidenschaft der besonderen Art voraus.

Einzelausstellungen in Gstaad, St.Tropez, St. Moritz, New York, wie seine Präsenz auf internationalen Messen Scope Basel, ScopeMiami Beach oder London Art Fair gehören seit Jahren zu seinem Schaffen.

English

Living in Hamburg, the artist Christian Voigt finds his inspirations not only in his hometown but especially on one of his many trips around the world. The impressions of what he sees in all those different cities like Prague or Madrid directly translate in his picures and capture a strongly idealised version of the world that surrounds us. Ranging from forgotten buildings, impressive architecture and landscapes or daily situations, the subjects of his photographs aren’t always easy to capture in all of their hidden beauty, but through his passion and skilled use oft he camera. Christian Voigt surely achieves to convey an almost mysthical feeling for his work.

Solo exhibitions in Gstaad, St.Tropez or New York and his presence at international art fairs like ScopeBasel, ScopeMiami Beach or London Art Fair only undermine his talent to captivate his audience with highly aesthetic photographs.
