Florian Haas Studio Visit


Florian Haas presents in his, naively seeming paintings, that are rich in colour, still lifes and landscapes that arise from his imagination. In the context of the exhibition “The Inner Life of Things” the artist shows us mainly in small and also large-size oil paintings portraits of mushrooms. These appears through a process of his sensitive observation and appreciation. During the studio visit Florian Haas spoke about the works presented at the Frankfurter Kunstverein in context of his general artistic ideas and paintings.
