In his painting, Sven Scharfenberg combines the romantic idea of discovering beauty and poetry in the everyday with the transience of architectural artifacts and casual snapshots of urban spaces and non-places.
Clear perspectives, charged lighting moods, and expressive color combinations invite viewers to immerse themselves in the atmospheres depicted. Thus, the seemingly inconsequential places and their non-human actors become backdrops for the exploration of human existence. They encourage reflection on the ambivalent transformation of the city and the emergence of collective memories.
