Thomas Huber

sad facets

“My pictures show spaces. You can see them but you can’t get to them; it is as if they are sealed behind clear glass. The picture is a promise that cannot be honoured, it is a wistful, sad thing. If I had the opportunity to enter the pictures, how would I find my bearings? I draw diagonal lines in the broad spatial flight. I find the centre at the point where these lines cross over. I add another diagonal and then another and check the depth of the picture. Eventually, an entire network of diagonals covers the spaces and I can identify a pattern of diamond shapes. The wall surfaces, shortened due to perspective, also resemble diamonds. Everything comes to a head below the surface; I see the pictures as sad diamonds.” (Thomas Huber, 2008)
