Wilhelm Sasnal depicts an intriguing scene. Perhaps it’s just a glass jar factory, perhaps a chemical plant, as suggested by the workers’ white overalls. The laconic style, visible brush strokes, and simplified colour suggest a documentary purpose rather than an attempt to build an elaborate narrative. The world is composed of an infinite number of tempting, mysterious images. “I find very many pretexts to paint. I find it hard not to succumb to them all. I feel extremely susceptible to images(…) These days I focus more on the painting process itself but that doesn’t mean that one day I won’t abandon it for quick, sketchy images,” explains Sasnal.
