Sven Kroner’s paintings are inspired by his own childhood in the mountains and forests of southern Germany. His large-scale landscapes, depicting lush woods or vast expanses, have been compared to the works of Romantic painters Caspar David Friedrich, John Constable, and J.M.W. Turner, but they differ in their focus on human existence and its effects. When people make appearances in the landscape, they are often shown from a distance in groups in a manner reminiscent of Flemish landscape paintings, but more often their presence is merely implied, through a porch light, an abandoned railway track, or a piece of trash floating in a lake.
