Since 1957, the painter Marwan, born in Damascus, has lived and worked in Berlin. The recurring theme of his work is the intimate encounter of the other as well as of oneself. His figurations stimulate reflection on the fleetingness of life. Heads are dissolved in scintillating face-landscapes. All doubt, all fear surfaces in the stream of time. Under the succinct, flowing brushstroke, often using muted colour, layer upon layer, bodies merge into bodies. They change imperceptibly, remaining elusive and open until the end.

In honour of his 75th birthday, the painter Marwan is a guest at Haus am Waldsee in August 2009. With this, the wish of Günter Braun (1928 - 2009), a long-standing friend and supporter of both the artist and the house, is fulfilled. He has felt a great affinity to the sensual as well as fragile world of Marwan’s imagery. The exhibition is his birthday present to an impressive artist between his rise to fall. In eleven acts, paintings, watercolours, and drawings from four decades are on display.
