Ursula Findling

Klassische Malerei, Grafik und deren Verbindung sind meine Passion. Die Basis der freien oft sehr experimentell angelegten Farb- und Formenspiele ist das Erleben der Natur und der Stofflichkeit dieser Welt.

Ursula Findling is now following Mati Klarwein

Abdul Mati Klarwein was born in Hamburg on the 9th of April 1932, to a Jewish architect father from Polish origins, and a German opera singer mother. The three of them fled to Palestine when he was two years old after the rise of Nazi Germany.

“I am only half German and only half Jewish with an Arab soul and a African heart”

(Later for a time Mati adopted the name of Abdul Mati Klarwein: "He wanted to have both a Muslim and a Jewish name: he was the healer," said a friend).

In 1948, Mati and his mother moved to Paris where he enrolled at the Académie Julian having previously dropped out of school in Israel and been sent at the age of 15 to an Art college in Jerusalem. He later studied with painter Fernand Léger, who introduced him to the art of Salvador Dalí, Buñuel, and the world of surrealism. Later in his life, he befriended Dalí, writing about his bizarre encounters with Salvador’s sexual behaviours in his book “Collected Works 1959-1975”. In Paris, he also met Viennese fantastic realist painter Ernst Fuchs."Ernst insisted on teaching me his mixed technique of Van Eyck and the Flemish school. I learned it in one week and sold every one of my paintings ever since."

With Paris as his base Mati spent long periods of time traveling, painting portraits during summers in Saint Tropez and, together with his father, who had recently won the competition to build Israel’s Parliament, the Kneset, he started to build a house in the small village of Deia, Majorca, having fallen in love with this place during a short visit, invited by archeologist Bill Waldren. In Deia he also became good friends with the poet Robert Graves, who was followed by many other artists who settled in this small community.

Klarwein moved to New York in 1965. By then his work was considered to be inspired by surrealism and the so-called psychedelic movement of the time. However, it was more his extensive traveling and wide interests of non-Western deities and symbolism that inspired his art more than the use of psychedelic drugs. His friend Timothy Leary once stated, that judging the character of his paintings, “Mati didn’t need psychedelics!” During his New York years he created paintings such as Bitches Brew, commissioned by Miles Davis for his landmark album of the same title. He also completed many portraits of people such as John F. Kennedy, his friend Jimi Hendrix and other important characters of the time, and finished his large scale project, The Aleph Sanctuary, a cubic temple of all religions, featuring 68 paintings, representing some Biblical passages such as “Anunciation” (1961) (later used by Santana for the cover of his best selling album, Abraxas), “Crucifixion” (1963-1965) represented by a highly sexual tree of life which caused quite a turmoil within the puritan white establishment as well as with the black panthers, “Nativity”(1962), “Grain of Sand” (1963-1965), and many other of Mati’s best known paintings. Later, Klarwein was forced to dismantle his Chapel and sell the paintings individually for economical reasons. The chapel was rebuilt in 1992 using aluminum structures to hold Plexiglas reproductions lit by rows of fluorescent tubes.

Mati settled in Deia in the early 80’s, working from his studio and home up in the northern costal mountains, surrounded by the landscapes that he so admired and painted in such astonishing detail as may be seen in his collection of “real-estate paintings” or “inscapes”. Also during these years, he created a number of “improved paintings” a collection that he had begun in the 1970’s, where he would purchase unwanted paintings in thrift stores and flea markets and bring them back to life by “improving” or recycling them, adding his own brush strokes to the originals, giving them a new meaning, often humorous, and if placed, always sharing both artists signatures.

Still best known for his art of the 1960s and 1970s, (featured in a vast collection of important album covers). Mati also worked more conventionally across a variety of genres including still life, landscape, and commissioned portraits. The amount of these are considerable, from Brigitte Bardot to Leonard Bernstein, Richard Gere, Geraldine Chaplin. Robert Graves, Peggy Hitchcock, Nan Kempner, Florence Van der Kemp, Yussef Lateef, Donyale Luna, the Mellon family, Jean Baptiste Mondino, Carmen Rossi, and many more…

Klarwein had two daughters and two sons.
Mati passed away on the 7th of March of 2002 in his home in Mallorca.

Ursula Findling is now following David Redford

David is an artist who loves colour and is inspired by artists such as Picasso. His pictures are acrylic on canvas and are always vibrant and full of colour with varying scenes and characters. David's pictures will always be a talking point in any room.

When I left a Munich advertising studio for Ireland, I dreamed of cheap whisky, hot geysers and a little adventure. Wrong. Very wrong indeed! The whiskey was expensive, the hot springs were in Iceland and the little adventure developed into a big adventure……. The land and it’s people were fascinating right from the beginning and after learning a few words of the English language, tinted with an Irish flavour, mind and soul were cleared of orderly Teutonic perceptions. The wind blew away the acquired photographic rules to let grey skies and green meadows convert easily into stunning pictures. The adventure was in full swing and I never missed the Bavarian studio.

Since then I have travelled to many exotic countries. During 1973, in recognition of my work, I was awarded the honours of a Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain (F.R.P.S.). In 1982 I started to build up my own Picture Library ( and for commercial reasons, moved to England. Here I soon discovered the Highland of Scotland which has so much in common with the Emerald Isle. The sunny beaches of exotic tourist destinations did not tempt me, hence it is no surprise that I still have not got around to buying a sensible sunshade for my camera. Instead of a sunshade I placed many other astonishing, yet creative ‘bits’ in front of my lenses in order to manipulate my work within the camera. Deception by photography ?

Then came the pixels: Rather than being satisfied with retouching existing photographs, I went in at the deep end and experimented with many different digital styles. The painted effects, created with the help of PhotoShop and Painter software, give a new meaning to "painting with light". Here, photography drifts into virtual painting and with each controlled brushstroke new ideas are opened up.

Mankind expressed creativity in the Stone Ages with a few colours derived from nature itself. The palette of shades evolved over centuries, today even the smallest of home computer, iThingy or smart phone lay claim to "millions of colours". Thus in photography, it is not the camera that creates the picture, but the person behind it - the computer technology is simply a medium helping us to express ourselves in ways we could have never envisaged a few years ago. May my selection of images cross barriers of language and culture, offering only inspiration.

My real name is Clemens-Raphael Dethlefsen

I've been working on photography for many years. Here I'm going to show some of my carefully composed calendar works of the last 9 years.
If you are open minded, you may feel the spirit behind the mirror. Open your eyes and you will sense light, space, and color. Everything designated to be natural transforms itself to supernatural, everything real to surreal.
I've often tried to remaster myself digitally. In consequence, I began to create unknown visual worlds. If you're interested in my latest imaginative artwork, please visit my calendar compositions of 2013 and compose a comment:

.schwerpunkt surreale zeichnungen bei artflakes unter surreal planet art buntrock ich will mich so kurz wie möglich auch in facebook zu finden,suche:waldemar buntrock.
Mein Name ist Buntrock Waldemar ich bin 52 jahre und feiere meine Geburtstage, weil ich noch auf dieser schönen Welt wandle, nicht weil ich älter werde.

Als kleiner Junge hatte ich diesen sagen wir mal eigenen "Planeten" in mir. Auf den ich mich zurückziehen konnte/kann. Auf diesen Planeten war noch nicht so viel Bewegung (Leben). Erst mit den Jahren wurde es dort immer komplizierter. Dort gehe ich mich mit meinem Innerenauge auf die Suche nach neuen Motiven und halte sie fest. Dies könnt ihr euch vorstellen wie eine Photografie. Die ich so weit überarbeite das ich sie auf Papier zeichnen (übertragen) kann. Die fremdartige
Art meiner Bilder ist nicht jedermanns Sache, deshalb sollten sie gerade der Welt gezeigt werden.

Das zeichnen brachte ich mir selbst bei.

Die meisten meiner Werke sind großformat Zeichnungen von 100x150cm.
Diese Bilder sind meine Lebensgeschichte aus einer "Seelerealen" (Surrealen) Welt.

Für die Digitale Welt habe ich sie Digital hübsch angezogen und lasse sie in die Welt hinaus.

Ich möchte mich bedanken bei allen die mich unterstützt haben, dass ich heute da bin wo ich mit meinen Bildern heute angekommen bin.

Nur Bilder, nicht Kunst
Menschen und Bilder haben in unserer heutigen Zeit manches gemeinsam. Man kann viel Geld ausgeben für einen teuren Haarschnitt, Makeup, Markenbekleidung, Stylisten, Accessoires oder gar Schönheitschirurgen um eine Person 'perfekt' aussehen zu lassen, nach dem Geschmack des Mainstreams und der aktuellen Mode. Und gleichzeitig dabei unglaublich langweilig und austauschbar.

Dasselbe mit Bildern. Man kann Tausende Euros ausgeben für hochwertiges Gerät, Software, Kurse und Reisen zu den atemberaubendsten Destinationen. Die Bilder werden dann sehr 'professionell' aussehen. Und gleichzeitig dabei unglaublich langweilig und austauschbar.

Unter Menschen mögen wir Leute oft deshalb, weil sie ein bisschen anders sind. Wir schätzen ihre kleinen Macken und Besonderheiten. Wir möchten nicht gelangweilt werden, viele von uns erleiden das ohnehin täglich bei der Arbeit. Daher ist das, was Du hier bei mir findest, nicht als Kunst gedacht, nicht von jemandem gemacht der sich selbst als großer Künstler sieht, sondern nur originale Inhalte die angenehm unterhalten sollen. Am besten auf Deiner Wand zuhause. Ich folge nicht den oft religiösen Vorstellungen von Elite-Fotografen, ich versuche Deinem Geschmack zu folgen. Schließlich hat das Publikum immer recht.
Es begann in einer Mittsommernacht. Nein, eigentlich begann es beim Wandern.
Nach dem Studium arbeitete ich zwei Dekaden als Business Consultant, Trainer, Unternehmer, Webentwickler und IT Fachmann. Eine meiner privaten Passionen ist das Wandern. Und das Entdecken nicht ganz so bekannter Gegenden meiner Heimat Oberösterreich. Natürlich hatte ich da immer eine kleine Kamera dabei. Einst kam ich auf die Idee bei Google+ ein kleines Profil anzulegen, um dort ein paar Eindrücke aus meiner Heimat zu präsentieren.

In der Zwischenzeit folgen mir mehr als 16.000 Menschen bei Google+. Freunde ermutigten mich, mehr aus meiner Fotografiererei zu machen. Hier ist das Resultat.
Üblicherweise folge ich zurück und like (schönes Denglisch) zurück, sobald ich dazu komme, und gebe mein Bestes auch die Arbeiten meiner Freunde auf Artflakes zu verfolgen, obwohl meine Zeit dafür wirklich sehr begrenzt ist. Bitte also immer ein wenig geduldig mit mir sein.
