Dietmar Brixy's new series of works bears the meaningful name REFLECT. It refers to the radiance of the colours that make Brixy's paintings shine so incomparably. Red dominates the series, as a signal colour that embodies sensuality and joie de vivre like no other. In 2021, red may also stand for new energy and optimism. More defensive colours like blue, grey and delicate pastel shades take a back seat, cool the temperature and play on the space that opens up behind the red. Like a theatre curtain, the red sets the stage for an almost illusionistic deep space, as we have known it since the Renaissance.
