As an artist, Boris Borsch is silent and reclusive. He believes that contact with nature is essential to his art, which is why he can be seen with his portable easel, leaving the studio to get in touch with the outdoors. His paintings are the result of a contemplation and struggle with colors, thick brush-stokes, and structural lines used in order to achieve an artistic equivalent to his inspiration. Landscapes and portraits give him equal opportunity to explore the nearby world. His gray-blue-cold-silvery coloring and multi-layered, dense, and almost sculptural painting technique is rigorous and epic-- it is so stressed and emotionally tense that it has to be confined in a small format. Yet, regardless of its format, Borsch's work reveals powerful immense statements.
