Christian Lauer was born in 1942 in Berlin. His father was internist, his mother ballet teacher. He experienced the post-war status of Berlin and the construction of the Wall in 1961. A medicine study followed in Fribourg/Switzerland and in Bonn/Germany. His specialist training as a radiologist took place in Bonn/D and Recklinghausen/D. Since 1971 he is married with Lut Van Den Eynde from Waregem/Belgium.
Christian Lauer was for more than 30 years head of the department Radiology at the O.L.V.V.Lourdes-Hospital in Waregem. With the installation of the 1. Computer-tomograph in Waregem in 1991 his search began for the new medical transparancy and for new picture dimensions in the unlimited anatomical landscape. During the next years Christian Lauer was occupied with the idea that the fantastic imagery, present in the Radiology, could be also used for artistic purpose. The fusion of art and medicine became a fascinating challenge. He studied the possibilities to work on these digital anatomical pictures and to strengthen these pictures in configuration and colour. The source of his inspiration was the fascinating anatomy of the human being, medically visible on every CT, which were the basic elements to show the human antomy in a new innovative way for every audience. In 2002 he started his X-ART-project with a first creation of an knee joint.
Christian Lauer chose consequently for the option of digital processing and by that he creates new pictures, based on 3D virtual documents of the human anatomy,ready for the lifestyle of modern flats, houses or hospitals.
