Adzer van der Molen

The motives in the paintings relate to ideas about freedom and longing. Ideas that play a dominant role in our culture. The symbolically layered work makes use of the landscape’s suggestive meaning; the contemporary, manufactured landscape in which isolated construction (fences, houses or roads) represents human endeavour. The picture can originate from film stills and television images, photography. A metaphorical landscape is developed, that seeks to transcend the particular. Titles of the works, derived from imagery and lyrics of songs, emphasise this. The paintings refer to the melancholy of forlorn dreams, lost ideals. The work has a romantic as well as an ironic side, is both reflective and lyrical.

Kultur-Biergarten 13 ``Never Go Home Anymore``

Das Wandgemälde ist mitlerweile zum Gesicht des Kultur-Biergartens geworden. 2013, zur zweiten Auflage des Festivals, bemalte Adzer als performance die Hofwand des Gasthofs zur Sonne.

Adzer, Erna und Pheadra sind seitdem nicht mehr wegzudenken.

The mural “Never Go Home Anymore” has become the face of the Kultur-Biergarten. Painted in a live performance at the second festival edition in 2013. It is the first artwork from the festival to stay in Rippershausen and also found it’s way into the festival logo.

Adzer, Erna & Phedra have become an important part of the festival since.
