Artist: Juergen Eckstein

With his paintings, the artist tries to stimulate the viewer to think about and look what is behind the shiny surface of things and activities around us in daily life and society. "Don't take everything for it's face value....look at what is behind the shiny surface".
Born in Germany, Juergen Eckstein has lived in Cologne, Germany, Tokyo, Singapore and Los Angeles and has shown his work internationally. He settled
on the Oregon coast in 2000.
Eckstein, an autodidact, has no formal art
education. He is self-taught, having learned
from doing, experimenting and playing
with various media since childhood.
Eckstein is mainly a painter, working with oils on canvas, and also works three dimensionally with wood, ceramics and glass. His style is abstract with elements of figurative subjects challenging the viewers to use their own imagination about content, form and look at what is behind the immediate surface.
In his work, everthing is not evident at first glance. “If you’ve shown everything, there is nothing left to see”, says Eckstein.
His carved wood sculpture,“Some However”, stands at the North side of the Performing Art Center in Newport.
