The now widely admired Leipzig painter Matthias Weischer (*1973) belongs to a generation of artists who have extrapolated a powerful emotional vocabulary from portraying interiors. Weischer adds a collage style of image-building to this vocabulary; in these recent paintings, executed between 2004 and 2008, interiors begin to resemble stage sets, giving peeks at the exterior beyond.
