In his paintings, Ger Stallenberg, manages to transform everyday reality into visual poetry. In this poetry of light and colour, he succeeds in adding an enigmatic quality to seemingly realistic scenes. Everyday reality acquires a touch of the timeless and eternal. A flower blooms in the foreground of an evocative timeless landscape. The interrelation of culture and nature is an often recurring theme in Stallenberg’s work.

A harmony of contrasts
It is an interrelation that brings out contrasts, but also surprising new qualities and unexpected similarities. The painter calls it “a harmony of contrasts”. It makes realism and imagination go hand in hand. Stallenberg’s works affords the spectator plenty of opportunity to dream away. The highly refined expression and the bright use of colours give the artist’s paintings an exceptional power of expression that can truly be called timeless
