Like hardly any other German artist, Hans Schreiner dealt with the subject of landscape and found new formulations for it. Moving beyond informal attempts, he has been developing landscape visions since the late fifties. "I paint towards something that ultimately resembles landscapes". The concept of "emotional spaces" used by the artist himself allows the bridge to the landscape compositions of Romanticism, in which the possibility of exploring the landscape as an expression of mental state was carried out. Thus synthetic images of nature emerge in which landscape experience and ego experience come together on an aesthetic level in the order of the composition and violation of the surfaces. Landscape combines with the existential. Signposts, landmarks, and horizons are part of the pictorial inventory and stand as signs for primal human feelings: loneliness, danger, abandonment, inner glow, and silence.
