How about your personal dream painting?
Choose motif and format yourself!
Prof. Dr. med. Wolfgang and Julia Distler, Dresden, May 2009
The periodical „Yacht“ first called our attention to Arno Dirksen’s paintings. Our curiosity aroused, we visited his booth at the „boot“ fair in Düsseldorf, at the end of January 2009.
For quite a while, we had been looking for a large-sized painting suitable for the living room wall in our Dresden mansion. Being avid sailors, we wished for a contemporary piece with a maritime subject that would add a modern touch to our listed building. We were immediately thrilled by Arno Dirksen’s exhibit, by his choice of motifs and colours, by the vivacity and expressiveness of his works. We felt sure to have met „our“ painter.
To resolve about motif, format, and colouring, we followed Arno Dirksen’s suggestion to project some motifs that he sent us by email with a beamer onto the wall – an excellent idea!Enthusiastically we opted for a piece titled „Lightness of Being“. Arno Dirksen painted for us the „New Lightness“, considerably larger and in its colouring surprisingly well tuned to the ambience. The artist had perfectly empathized with the description of our house, our wishes and conceptions.
Now our „dream painting“ is up on the wall, to our and our family’s and friends’ delight.
We look forward to visiting Arno Dirksen at the next „boot“ fair hoping to partake in his further career: may many more art lovers „discover“ him!
