Reiner Heidorn lives and works in Weilheim, Bavaria. The autodidact painter processes in his oversized and mostly monochrome paintings the relationship between man and nature. The desire to unite with nature, to become one with it and even to dissolve in it - Reiner Heidorn gives form and color to this thought. Over the years of his work, he has developed his own unique painting technique and gave it a name - "Dissolutio", which means disappearance. His paintings consist of tiny microscopic elements, flowing various shades of green and blue arrange themselves in gentle transitions on the canvas. They suggest forests, lakes, plants, up to whole worlds. Thus his artistic work stands in a contemporary discourse of socially topical issues such as climate change or the alienation of man with regard to his natural environment. Reiner Heidorn's works have been shown in exhibitions in Brazil, Dubai, the USA and in various German and European cities.
