Blending classical and contemporary techniques and references, German artist Michael Hutter creates lush paintings of strange worlds that feature elements of fantasy, religion, science fiction, pop culture, horror, and many others. Veritable paradisiacal hells that take us into vibrant and anachronic versions of medieval paintings.
To evoke these pictures I developed some techniques which consists of my way to deal with literature, art, music, philosophy, science, religion and pseudo-science afar from mainstream culture. I don’t care for reality or the probability that something is true, only for its potential to stimulate my thought. In my opinion truth is somehow an illusion anyway. I mix that with my obsession, passions, desires and fears and choke what happens in the abyss of my personality back on the surface.Michael Hutter
