Dietmar Brixy

Brixy’s early visual world plumbs depths and origins. The content is symbolically loaded and artistically pictorial. The human being is at the centre of the painterly interest. The primordial material “water”, chance encounters, winding and trodden paths of life become essential. Penetration into and emergence from deep soul worlds and a variable thicket of formal structures dominate the canvases. The power of this visual language is fed by the concentration on the essential.

» In Malaysia, in the middle of an alien outer world, Brixy developed a strange, equally primal inner world. More than that: he captured these discoveries in paint. These pictures are the product of an explorer’s expedition. «
