  • Biografia /Biography

    O forte claroscuro, as áreas de cor monocromáticas, as formas geométricas, as linhas e os pontos – sua agregação simbólica e a concentração em elementos recorrentes tornaram a marca registrada de DAG. Traduzido em substitutos abstratos, DAG inunda telas brancas com formas em retrospectiva para sua intuição composicional e coloca-os em um movimento rotativo. Visto a distância, as telas parecem ser painéis perfeitamente construídos. Uma visão de close-up revela erros, pinceladas, omissões, que enfraquecem a superficialidade das superfícies e revelam a trilha do pintor.

    Desde os meus estudos de arte, estou interessado em formas geométricas abstratas. Com referências a Kasimir, Malevich e Vassily Kandinsky são formas de pontos iniciais para minha pintura não representacional
    em telas ou paredes. Nos meus primeiros anos como jovem pintor no pós-socialista e reunido Berlim, eu estava tentando encontrar um estilo individual entre as prioridades conflitantes de pinturas realistas
    pelos artistas berlinenses da ex-RDA, bem como de Berlim Oeste e da techno-cena emergente em Berlim. Neste clima especial de terra de despejo político depois que o muro caiu (1989/90) na Alemanha e uma nova vanguarda, encontrei minha linguagem artística: uso formas abstratas tradicionais e trazê-los em constelações dinâmicas e pulsantes. Constantemente estou desenvolvendo esta estratégia .Além disso: um dilúvio de triângulos ou milhares de pontos transformam galerias inteiras em um ambiente geométrico. Na minha pintura, uso a tela branca como um campo de jogos para minhas turbulências geométricas.

    Strong chiaroscuro, monochrome colour areas, geometric shapes, lines and dots – their symbolic aggregation and the concentration on recurring elements has made DAG his trademark. Translated into abstract surrogates, DAG floods white canvases with shapes in retrospect to his compositional intuition and puts them into a rotating movement. Seen from a distance, the canvases seem to be perfectly constructed panels. A close-up view reveals blunders, brushstrokes, omissions, that weaken the superficiality of surfaces and reveals the painter’s trail.

    Since my art studies I’m interested in abstract geometrical forms. With references to Kasimir
    Malevich and Vassily Kandinsky are this forms initial points for my non-representational painting
    on canvases or walls. In my starting years as a young painter in the post-socialist and reunited
    Berlin I was trying to find an individual style between the conflicting priorities of realistic paintings
    by Berlin-based artists from the ex-GDR as well as West-Berlin and the emerging techno-scene
    in Berlin. In this special climate of political waste land after the wall came down (1989/90) in
    Germany and a new avant-garde I found my artistic language: I use traditional abstract forms
    and bring them in dynamic and pulsating constellations. Constantly I’m developing this strategy
    further: A flood of triangles or thousands of dots makes entire galleries to a geometrical
    environment. In my painting I use the white primed canvas as a playground for my geometrical
    turbulences.
