Jan Vorpahl

It is conceptually conditioned, abstract painting, in the context of which concepts/aspects of human life such as “I”, “CHANGE”, “VIVILITY” and, based on them, opposites such as “BLACK – WHITE”, “INTERNAL – EXTERNAL”, “CHAOS – ORDER”, “LIFE – DEATH” etc. are considered, examined and reconsidered in their coherent spectrum.

Decisive for the underlying aesthetic concept of this painting is the simple but essential fact that colors can be distinguished from each other even with the most subtle changes in their mixing ratio.The foundation, base and ground of this aesthetic is thus the visible difference. The spectrum in which the difference/differentiation of colors can be moved ranges from very fine to contrary and forms the possible framework.

From this aesthetic field thus defined, correspondingly different pictorial genres or series can be generated through various principles of arrangement.
