Sebastian Spreng: DRESDEN

Dresden Dresden2

MAY 17 - SEPTEMBER 23, 2018

Sebastian Spreng’s DRESDEN depicts the decimation of this beautiful eastern German city by Allied bombers in February 1945, and is a meditation on mankind’s infinite capacity for both good and evil. Despite the stark messaging of the images in the  DRESDEN project, the 61 works, created on an iPad, have an undeniably lyrical, painterly quality due, in part, to Spreng’s deep knowledge of and passion for classical music; he infuses his paintings with the spirit of his preferred composers.

Sebastian Spreng: DRESDEN is made possible thanks, in part, to Presenting Sponsor Beaux Arts and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
