Roger Koenig is an abstract painter who lives and works out of Bauhaus City Dessau. Koenig’s work can be described as ethereal, and attains a level of detail that persuades the viewer to revisit each piece— discovering new secrets each time. Koenig enjoys utilizing older, and more traditional painting techniques; and as an experienced veteran painter, it’s been some time since he’s analyzed the specifics of his motivation. Koenig’s input medium for his work takes on many forms… antique walls, a nice patina, and aged textures which overlap years of existence fascinate him. These attributes which are naturally attained over time are what Koenig attempts to represent within his work. Koenig holds a Master’s Degree in painting from HWK Halle in Germany. After completing his work at HWK he studied at the University of Applied Sciences in Magdegurg. Koenig has been working within his trade since 1991, earning his Master’s Certificate three years later. Continuing to push the boundaries of his medium, Koenig’s work on canvas is innovative and highly experimental.

The works of the artist living in Dessau are equally unique and tension-filled. Thereby, he always draws abstractly and by doing so, he leaves enough room for the most diverse personal associations or emotions.

Haptical surfaces are characteristic for the work of König, just as elaborately composed colors are. Off-white shades and warm earthy tones combined with luscious gold are standing next to cool nuances of grey and blue. Also powerful emphasizes in a luscious red can be found in his pictures. They integrate into their environment harmonically without being solely decorative.

The artist does not work entirely non-representational, but includes figurative elements into his pictures as well indeed: his portraits and representations of figures bridge between abstraction and figuration. Also elements from the nature, like trunks, can be identified. However, through the abstracting manner of painting, they stay vague and must be read like universal codes. In this case as well, it is up to the viewer what he or she would like to see. In each moment, new things can be discovered in the picture, it changes its meaning: depending on the light, the time of the day or on your own personal mood.
