PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.


Pastels by Wieland Payer
Wieland Payer is a particular type of landscape painter. Imagination and powers of observation converge in his pastels and drawings. A Humboldtian reflection of nature and a Romantic worship of landscape are interrupted by Payer's own painterly dimension. His landscapes are populated with strange abstract forms, light reflexes, objects and architectures. “Two characteristics are immediately obvious in Wieland Payer's landscapes: They are generally devoid of a human presence, and something isn't quite right with them.” (Björn Egging) The book features Payer's pastels and charcoal drawings from the last three years.
