About the work of Wieland Payer ... more >

The atmospheric density and artistic perfection of Wieland Payer’s pastels and prints refer to the art of German Romanticism, to Carl Blechen and Caspar David Friedrich. At the same time the artist is a passionate fan of the science fiction epics of Lem, Strugatsky and Tarkovsky.
