Forms, pictures and feelings: the artist Elmar Trenkwalder works both as a sketcher and painter on the one hand, and as a sculptor on the other. In his work produced for Hotel Greif he combines sketching and sculpturing for the first time.
The erotic and three-dimensional meld in the artistically carved triptych on the wall beside the bed. Three landscape drawings are framed in a fantastical, imaginary architecture featuring sensual forms.
As a warm, soft material the wood comprising the frame is reflected in the gold of the silk curtains and envelops the room in a gentle, sensuous atmosphere.
The ink drawing “Rokoko-Skizze” (1920) (Rococo sketch) by the artist Fritz von Herzmanovsky-Orlando (1877-1954) hangs over the desk where one of the original rounded chairs from the old Hotel Greif beckons the guest. As a satirical author and sketcher he was an exceptional phenomenon who seduces us into a realm of fantasy full of whimsical and erotic daydreams. In doing so he also reinterprets figures from mythology and history in an absurd manner.
