In Robert Niemann’s artistic work, surreal compositions capture intimate human situations, which seem detached from their spatial environment. Sketches of memories as well as photographic studies are transferred into large formats by using coloured pencils and pastels with extreme precision and a keen eye to detail..

The intensity of colourful images on white or black background captivates the viewers attention. Beyond superficial beauty and sensual atmosphere, hidden and subconscious emotions are exposed. Moments of intense silence, distant from a tumultuous world, show instants of quiet reflection and contemplation.

Using artistic techniques of repetition, reflection and alienation, Robert reveals metaphoric questions about facets of human existence. His colourful drawings exhibit Robert`s ability to emphasize with his protagonists and represent his own emotions.
