The artist Ernst Peter Prokop perceives the things of life that we often pass by. His gaze points and in the chosen section of his black-and-white or color photographer, trees and their roots become magical signs that inspire our imagination. His paintings express respect and admiration for a living world in which man has not yet intervened destructively. The photographer Prokop points with his camera, illuminates details, highlights individual features and opens up the possibility for the viewer to discover in a multidimensional way.
Rooted: The earth under our feet is it. Without them, there would be no life. – Rooted:
We should be, if we did not want to become a foreign-determined mass particle. – Uprooted:
We would have been abandoned to decay if we lost touch with the one that makes us grow. From our roots we draw the strength for this life. We are rooted in the place of our origin, the place of origin, the place where we can grow beyond ourselves and change. And to all this, the forest gives us the most necessary thing for life through its breath.
Anyone who follows Ernst Peter Prokop’s pictures step by step will get closer to himself and get an idea of the great vitality that is showing us. Thank you to all the patron saints that we have not yet destroyed all the miracles that keep us alive. The artist keeps us a memory of it.
