Gazmend Freitag: Stonebridge in Prizren, 2013. oil on canvas, 100 x 80 cm. Private collection!
The historic bridge of
Prizren and the surrounding landscape are lovingly painted in the style of the
Impressionists. Colors and shapes imply an idyllic place where one feels at
home. The pachtes of light on the river create a sense of movement and
friendliness, while the arch of the bridge seems to welcome the observer with
open arms. The darker colors of the mountains in the background anchor the
fluidness of the water and the gracefulness of the bridge and convince us of
the realness of this place. An hommage of the artist to his homeland and to a
place that he still feels connected to.
