“The freedom of art is courage.” – Scharein on the central idea of his work:

The impact of the paintings is not aimed at quick understanding, but requires time from the viewer. I wish viewers would dare to just perceive my paintings emotionally first, and then let themselves be guided. The topics of my multipart works are again and again: Where do we come from? What are we doing here? And what will come afterwards?

(Scharein, August 2015)

Over the three years I have elicited the greatest possible increases in light, energy and colour intensity from my new paintings – as responses to the extraordinary challenges of the Corona period. (watch the video about the Corona-Cycle)
