Siegfried Zademack was born in Bremen/Germany on December 24, 1952. Freelance artist since 1981. Several artshows of his work in and outside his homecountry.
His surrealistic visionary paintings make recipients and reviewers wonder. The arrangement of his pictorial thoughts immensely exceeds a realistic reproduction.
Zademacks paintings allow us to slip in metaphysical dimensions, between humorous irony and the unfathomable deepness of our souls.
At an early stage, he aquired all the means of expression that even a master in this field - like Dali, for example - hardly possesses to a higher degree. The semantic
sources of this art are equally past and present. The quotation from art history stands alongside the Coca-Cola bottle. His true teachers were the masters of
the early and late Italian Renaissance up to the Mannerists. The syntax of his work is completely determined by that of the classical masters.
What is astonishing: in adoption for his own pictorial inventions, he employs such perfect technique - though this is indispensable, in view his objectives.
His figural inventions are clearly sculptured, but his iconolatry presumes considerable knowledge of art history and politics.
In some of his pictorial quotes, we detect the difference to the Surrealist approach: it is the historical angle, which was yet possible and this is the present-day aspect - in
mannerist periods. Descartes had seen this without making an issue of it: mundus est fabula, the world is a grand fable, a never-ending story in which we are
lf we live from stories, there are no sharp borderlines between periods, for history becomes present, and anything we do today is already future. This is the link between
Boltraffio’s Madonna and the American Way of Life, which makes no distinction between the classics and Coca Cola.
