Clemens Büntig
Unknown Transit

Clemens Büntig is an independent artist and printmaker active in Munich. The outstanding use of color and the experimental use of different materials and techniques feature both in his own artistic production and in his activity as printer for other artists. During his years at Pace Prints in New York he printed highly complex editions of artists like Ed Ruscha, Jennifer Bartlett or, later in his own printstudio, of Sean Scully.  
 
About his creative philosophy, Büntig says "I build a nest for the unexpected/coincidence and invite it in." 
 
Clemens Büntig’s art work feeds on what is nurturing. Since 2008 this has been mainly plants as one (of many) transporting medium and expression of the natural life force; also the movement of the wind, color tones, atmospheres, patterns of the material used such as paper, copper plates or acid, time and process, relationships and social movements. In an ideal state Clemens Büntig experiences himself as a membrane of time, a transformer, and his prints as documents of states of being. Organic shapes serve as a solvent for humane states of being. The growth of plants triggers parallels to thought processes, inner emotional meandering or clarity of spirits. The use of color is used as an expression of emotional qualities.
