BERLIN.- One subject and three artists; they all have their own story to tell and each has their own unique approach to this classic genre of art: portraiture. While all three artists have taken concepts from two different time periods and fused them together in a unique combination, it is the portrait that becomes the common thread for this exhibition. The media in which each artist creates covers a full and varied gamut and illustrates the complexity of the present by way of a vehicle of the past. Tilo Uischner from Germany presents his works titled, ‘the disappearance of childhood’ with a unique blending of the old world craft of intarsia or marquetry and the contemporary material of acrylics to bring his imagery to life. In each portrait, the subject’s garb is formed with dozens of carefully spliced wood veneers and their bodies are deftly painted; together they form a truly life like image. In every work, Tilo captures a moment that leaves the viewer open to interpret
