When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

Jochen Hein

The vast majority of his work consists of land and seascapes expressed in almost total abstraction as he apparently explores the random textural and tonal capabilities of his medium. But just to prove a point or perhaps to scratch a nagging itch he periodically produces works of large scale hyper-realism. Altogether an extraordinary artist. You can go to his website (www.jochenhein.de) where much of his work is fairly well organized or you can go to Artdoxa.com where more of his work is posted (about 500 images right now).
He has also generously posted hi-res images of his realism so PLEASE click on these to view them much much larger.
