The Painting that Dives into the Invisible
Living in Brazil since 2003, the German painter Lennart Goebel reflects in his recent paintings a sense of rebirth and discovery of a new world. His works are affiliated to the current of figurative expressionism, so the colors are born directly from the artist's emotions, not a simple naturalistic portrait of the world.
The expressionist painter dedicates himself to the subjective values of the screen, rather than the objectivity of the banal world. He expresses his instinctive and also irrational nature in his paintings, he follows the impulse of his personal passions. What the artist wants is not the objectivity of expression, although his human figures are close to realism. He receives psychically and mentally visions which he recreates on the canvas, from the inside out, thus externalizing individual reflection. In the process, the world is not depicted, but recreated with the eyes of the soul, with the inner vision of the artist.
Jazztopia plays Gershwin
On Friday, October 5, also at 12:30, I went to another Música no Museu concert, at the Centro Cultural da Light, on Rua Larga. A trio called Jazztopia would be playing an exclusive programme of George Gershwin standards. The group is formed by Bavarian brothers Wolfram Goebel (tenor sax), Lennart Goebel (keyboards) and Finnish drummer Sami Kontola.
