Gary Rohweder, a Minnesota native. has been painting in various media for over 50 years. A contractor for this same period of time, he combines building design skills with his efforts in the field of art. A hunter/fisherman, his love of the outdoors comes through his work in the vibrant use of colors to highlight field, forest and clouds.
He considers himself self taught but has taken numerous Community Education classes to bolster his skills in oil acrylics.and watercolors.
“Seoul Despair” is based on a photo taken by Üric in South Korea in 1986. A work in GalerieGlobien’s Legacy series, it’s Gary’s first effort at oil-on-gessoed Baltic Birch. Like other commissions in the Legacy series, it is a 30×20″ work (Iandscape) and follows the Gerhard Richter formula of photorealism.
Ülric considers this work as Munch’s “The Scream” for capturing a moment in time when three people, father, son and brother-in-law are caught up in unresolved tension and familial turmoil.
