Two artists set out on a journey to prove that art can be simple too. They traveled distances (in search of scenic locations) to produce work that surprised many. One painted the pattern of his shirts and the other captured it all perfectly but the purpose of their work is not as simple as it seems.
Artist Hank Schmidt in der Beek and photographer Fabian Schubert have been working on a project, called Und im Sommer tu ich malen ("And in the Summer I do paint").
"He (Fabian) was with his medium format camera to take some photographs, me with some canvases and an easel to make some paintings. Confronted with the immenseness of the mountains and the littleness of my canvasses, I decided to paint what's nearest to me instead of what's afield and giant," Hank told while talking about his project.
What's interesting is that the duo traveled to places where some of the greatest artists like Paul Cezanne, Vincent van Gogh, and Claude Monet have been before.
Talking to Edition Taube, Hank explained, "Basically, I paint whatever my wardrobe offers me"
