Jürgen Schilling

Nature as Landscape

Jürgen Schilling’s work serves as a tribute to the landscapes of southern France.

For the past forty years, Jürgen Schilling has been painting the landscapes of southern France. The art historian Wilhelm Schlink has followed his career from the beginning, both as a friend and a collaborative thinker. In this book, Schlink offers lively descriptions of the artist’s approaches, taking into account current debates about contemporary interpretations of landscape painting.
Since the 1970s, Schilling has found inspiration in the rough countryside near the Mediterranean, the Corbières and the Minervois, where natural elements can be experienced at first hand. Schilling is known for using raw materials and pigments found on location in his work. Based on his studies of art history and philosophy relating to the broad field of landscape representation, he has created an oeuvre driven by the need to do justice to events and experiences.
