The latest showcase comes from Thomas Riesner – please note, the text has been translated to English from German.
My interest in art started in 1990 in a club for mentally ill people. The club is called Durchblick e.v. in Leipzig. It is a gallery and a museum.
I don’t have a starting point for my works of art. That might sound a bit strange. I just start painting. Everything arises from the subconscious. Actually, my own mind and soul influence me and music and films also influence me more often.
I hope that the viewer will see what I don’t see.
The term outsider art doesn’t bother me.
I’m working on a drawing and the moment and I hope that I will keep painting and drawing.
