Antoine Bernhart – Im Dunklen Wald


Bernhart’s large-size watercolours introduce us to a world of power, lust and cruelty.

They depict grotesque sceneries with tied-up women – and, in recent works, increasingly often men – at the mercy of masked creatures, monsters and doll-like characters.

Bernhart’s motifs clearly reflect the artist’s fascination with Japan in general, and shibari (Japanese bondage) in particular, while the grotesque faces lurking behind dark trees, the burning houses and wild animals are eerily reminiscent of fairy tales gone wrong.

Warning: Some of the graphic material in this book might hurt viewers’ sensibilities and is not suited for children and adolescents.
