Biography


The German artist Norbert Lösche was born in 1951. He's self-taught and painted as a child. He decided to attempt to make his living through painting in his twenties and succeeded .

In the seventies Norbet Lösche was into eastern philosophy (Hinduism and the teachings of Maharishi). He has always liked to paint Krishna and other colourful Indian deities and continually works at improving his skills as an artist. During this time he made a lot of pencil and ink drawings and is also able to work in the style of the Chinese landscape painters. Another era he is interested in is the Renaissance and he has studied the master painters of that time.

As the years went on Lösche incorporated more colour into his work, but is still a dab hand with pen and ink. In the early 1990s he decided to try some abstract painting in the style of Kandinski and then moved onto abstract expressionism, this process helped free Lösche as an artist and was a great benefit to him when he went on to paint murals, which he recently, [2002], mastered. He is also a gifted portrait painter.

Lösche has no website of his own and isn't into computers at all, he much prefers to paint 8 - 12 hours a day! He turned to Tibetan Buddhism five years ago, circa 1997 and has just shaved his head [May 2002].

Norbert Lösche admires the looks of Ingrid Bergman and loves women in general.

He is always striving to improve his art.

Biographie

Norbert Lösche, Jahrgang 1951, lebt und arbeitet Norbert Lösche seit über 25 Jahren als freier Künstler in Aachen und Umgebung. Nach einigen Semestern Kunstgeschichte widmete er sich ab 1975 ganz der Malerei. Beeinflusst von den Werken von Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Brueghel, den Romantikern (Kaspar David Friedrich), den Surrealisten, (Dali, Clericci) und der Schule des Phantastischen Realismus (Ernst Fuchs, Mati Klarwein) schuf er in den siebziger Jahren eine psychedelische Bilderwelt voller traumatischer Symbolik. In dieser Zeit war er, philosophisch gesehen, in den Religionen des Christentums, des Hinduismus sowie im Zen, der transzendentalen Meditation und den Lehren Bhagwans (von dem er sich nach einem Aufenthalt in der Kommune in Oregon abwandte) zu Hause.

Der Dalai Lama erhielt in den achtziger Jahren eines seiner wunderschönen Rosenbilder als Geschenk Handkolorierte Radierungen von Lösche fanden ihren Weg in die Wohnung eines New Yorker Kunsthändlers. Sammler seiner Kunst finden sich in allen Schichten der Bevölkerung, wobei der surreal-traumatische Teil seines Schaffens unter Ärzten, Psychiatern und Neurologen eine Reihe von Malern gefunden hat.

Gegen Ende der achtziger Jahre etablierte er sich als freier Mitarbeiter der Agentur Holl, Aachen, international als Illustrator. Norbert Lösche schuf das u. a. das COSMIC -TAROT, das inzwischen in sechs Sprachen erschienen ist. Auf zahlreichen Büchern (vor allem im esoterischen Bereich) finden sich seine Bilder wieder. Als Illustrator der Bücher „Handbuch der Astrologie" , „Lexikon der Esoterik" sowie „Traumdeutung und Traumsymbole" konnte er seinen reichen Wissensschatz im Bereich der menschlichen Entwicklung und Transformation in adäquate Bilder umsetzen.

In der Mitte der 90iger Jahre beschäftigte Norbert Lösche sich mit den Arbeiten abstrakter Künstler (hier vor allem Kandinsky) Es entstanden zahlreiche vom abstrakten Konstruktivismus beeinflusste Ölgemälde. Von dieser Entwicklungsphase ausgehend entwickelte Norbert Lösche über den Abstrakten Expressionismus sein Oeuvre der reinen Lichtmalerei, die zur Jahrtausendwende in die Malerei von Mandalas überging. Für den Kenner seines künstlerischen Werdegangs ist es interessant zu wissen, dass parallel eine Hinwendung zum Buddhismus vollzogen wurde.

Zur Zeit entstehen neben den geometrischen Mandalas große Wandgemälde, mit denen er sich auch als Meister der Illusionsmalerei ausweist. Das letzte große Projekt ist die Schöpfung eines neuen Tarot, daß in Zusammenarbeit mit Werner Bogun, einem Fachautor für esoterische Bücher, entsteht. Norbert Lösche lebt zur Zeit in Aachen.

The New Unnamed Tarot Deck

Progress of the Deck: 10 Down 68 To Go

At the moment Norbert Lösche is working on a new Tarot Deck with the help of the German writer, Werner Bogun, who has a lot of knowledge about esoteric, especially the teachings of Aleister Crowley. 10 cards are already painted, including the Ace, Five and Six of Cups. The new deck will be terrific since it combines deep knowledge with Lösche's artistic craftsmanship.
