Residua: Thinking Beckett

Residua: Thinking Beckett is a series of three paintings all painted with different shades and types of white. They relate to the prose poetry “Residua” by Samuel Beckett, trying to be as radical as his piece to instigate the “truth behind the usual perception”. This painting is part of my space research. I use painting as it mirrors best the inner, non-rational explanation of the non-space: In art, we think in a different space which, inserted in the common space, opens up possibilities of transformation. I define this space as non-space: a “gap”, a discontinuity of physical and immaterial structures through translation activity in artistic operation. The non-space initiates reflection and alternative mental processes toward awareness and autonomy. In other words, the non-space is an aesthetic reflection on an alternative imaginary, creating a momentum of perspective change.

Green – White series

This series of 5 oil paintings related to the perception of space. As in minimal and abstract art practice is tried to review common ideas of space by dealing with the constituent units of a “painting” evoking a continuum in the head of the perceiver. The series and the here showed painting is a result of my space research. For my work the examination of architectural and abstract spaces as we know them from mathematics, geometrics and in scientific representations as well as in textual structures is fundamental. These spaces or structures reflect on the one hand the structures of mental processes, on the other hand, they are the limits of our thinking and our imaginations. The premise of my research and artistic operation is, that space is the main condition of thinking. I use painting as it mirrors best the inner, non-rational explanation of the non-space: In art, we think in a different space which opens up possibilities of transformation.
