What does the artist Brixy present?
At the exhibition LANDSCAPE I the artist Brixy will be present with his round paintings, the so-called Bamboo Bubbles. A late onset of winter in March 2006 leads to the variation of the bamboo theme. The otherwise steeply rising shoots of the plants bend under the heavy snow load in a semicircle to the ground. The painter reflects this twice: in the painted circular forms as well as in the format of the round picture, the tondo.
Brixy's "Bamboo Bubbles", a multifaceted cosmos in which everything revolves around growth energy and flexibility, is created.

This is what the art historian Dr. Dorothée Bauerle-Willert says about the circular paintings of the artist Brixy
Unconventional and free, Dietmar Brixy's iridescent tondos take up the growth energies of nature, its rondo; in a spiral movement from one to the other, the art forms of nature are transferred into nature forms of art. The circular paintings thus reflect and play out the "dialectic of nature and counter-nature," of figuration and abstraction. The elastic lines of color intertwine, intertwine, form - almost as if by themselves - inward growths, open vistas. View of nature is transformed into an artificial structure, but in such a way that the process transformation, which includes before and after, remains vivid. The principle of sequence, grouping, and repetition employed in the Bamboo Bubbles series refers on the one hand to natural growth processes, but on the other hand - and almost in paradox - incorporates formal strategies of serial art.
