CM: This picture is a study for a larger painting. Wohlers has said: "My paintings represent a quiet communication between man and his surroundings. They are a response to the over-abundance of information and irony that we receive on a regular basis. Some information we accept, and some we reject; these paintings embody the acceptance, and allow the viewer to cope with the rejected, by creating a quiet environment where beauty can coexist with technology. The work almost represents a form of escapism in a sense, when the viewer can be manipulated into a silent moment, but is then brought back into reality by the imagery. The work itself is produced with traditional concepts in mind. Craft and skill are held as important and concept and design. I have a deep love for realism, and describing an alternate world while using familiar imagery is always the ambition."
