A given arrangement results in movement!
Andreas Karl Schulze is a painter, but his works are not paintings in the traditional sense. They do, however, quite imperceptibly draw part of their essence from painting. Clear colors appear in the form of small squares of identical size, which are fixed to the walls of the exhibition space. Their pattern is irregular, composed intuitively and based on specific observations within an extended creative process. A given arrangement results in movement, and the emptiness and vastness of space becomes the base for a new creation. In terms of perception and reduction, Andreas Karl Schulze appears to be an ideal conversational partner for Josef Albers and his homage to the square. The wall paintings are flanked by sculptural works – color modules mounted on freestanding plywood panels. The catalog documents the exhibition and features an interview by Heinz Liesbrock with Andreas Karl Schulze that guides us to the heart of the work.
