"iz .art" : Cosmic-Painting Series

Under the heading "Cosmic Paintings", works are summarized that deal mentally and painterly with elementary things in the broadest sense. These paintings attempt to reinterpret the inspirations from the environment and nature.

.

Ciphers for Space and Time
These paintings are based on elements that combine prehistoric signs and "cosmic" structures. By combining contrasting visual themes, they try to create space for an independent interpretation. "Reflection" and "Spectrum" play with their own perspective and visual language.

Cross-time, structural overlays
Here the "structures" of earlier and newer visual themes merge into a fresh unity. A confused structure of new types of interweaving and a compositional counterweight and overweight are laid out over a visual language with formulated ciphers known from older works. "Old meets new".

This work quotes the angel of the Annunciation paintings as well as note sequences of the music pictures. Both are integrated into a broad network structure that overgrows the old topics.

The shapes of these figures are reminiscent of works by the "atomic figures" from the series "Human-Cipher". As with those paintings, figures unite with a filament structure surrounding them, and it seems that they dissolve in them.

Thematically related paintings

Between 1983 and 1987 the following paintings were made on cardboard and canvas. On the one hand, they address the point in the association with other points, which become visible like fictitious atoms and are distributed differently in allocated rooms. Another group of works is devoted to the element water in its diverse manifestations and meanings.

.

Dotted
Points and rows of points are the subject of extremely reduced paintings, which make a breakdown into atomic structures a narrative object. Delimited picture fields specify an available space, which imaginary rows of points claim and fill with color.

The "Triangoli d 'Aquae" combine the triangular symbol of water with the property of reflection. The colored structures, which are reflected on water surfaces, also inspired these water triangles, some of which present themselves like beach goods or "finds on canvas".
