His talent as an illustrator is recognized, his techniques are multiple, oil painting, engraving, pastel, collages ... as well as an important Alsatian work on glass.
Accomplished artist, he offers to the mind a popular and universal Alsatian look.
Pascklin plays with attitude, atmosphere and gestures. Alive, dancing, sometimes tender, in love or full of energy and good humor, his characters are immediately identifiable. The faces are uncovered, and to be discovered in the mind of each one.
Visiting one of his exhibitions is an exciting walk, it is to immerse oneself in his small world populated by Alsatians proud to wear their costumes and proud to live in their so beautiful region.
Pascklin works according to old techniques and makes his own oil colors.
The colors are frank and capture the light. White and black, extreme and recurring values, giving the rhythm of his paintings, tell the story of Alsace, with its bright and dark periods.
He paints the present moment, while suggesting the one after or recalling the moment that has just passed.
The glazes of his backgrounds, at the limit of abstraction, bring their transparency and fluidity to the atmosphere of the painting, and it is by inhabiting his characters that he anchors his painting in his land.
His paintings revisit with a very contemporary writing this timeless folklore and bring back to life a whole era that has marked the collective memory.
Numerous contributions of covers or illustrations of alsatics.... calendars, wine labels, postcards, books
