Christian Hellmich (b. 1977) creates works characterized by gestural abstraction and the asymmetrical arrangement of planes of color, which are used to develop a kind of geometric grid pattern that dissects the pictorial space. This avoids any uniform perspective so that spaces penetrate into one another, and various image planes appear simultaneously. The fragments of motifs that Hellmich assembles are taken from his extensive image archive of photographs, magazine cuttings, Internet sources, postcards, and more. His approach is shaped by society’s handling of images in today’s mediatized age. References to architectural structures and comic-like shapes trigger associations without being clearly categorizable, thus rousing interest in their assumed decryption.
