Forms of disappearance

"How does the ego behave towards the world? How does the internet change our conception of subject and object?

In the digital media, an increasingly close-meshed global network can be observed, in whose structure, on the other hand, the single individual increasingly isolates themself, shielding themselves behind the screen. The shift to digitality erodes corporeal physicality. The analogue grasping hand is exchanged for the finger (Latin digitus) that merely points from a distance.

The digital subject suffers the same fate as Narcissus, whose gaze narrows down to only his own reflection - filtering out the surroundings, thrown back onto himself, isolated. For him, the world becomes a hall of mirrors, an untouchable reflection of his superficial appearance. Similarly, social media does not represent all facets, but only an idealized section of ourselves. The absolute surface of the display has no depth and materiality, is - just like Narcissus' reflection, hollowed out, unable to show inwardness.

But how does the world of the toddler come to appear, who has not yet learned to recognize himself in the mirror, has not yet developed ego consciousness and consequently narcissism - whether pathological or in a normal degree - does not yet have a subject to centre on?

Assuming that abstract painting is a method of remembering this original world, I try to redevelop sensitivity for the depth of immediate perception - to break up the superficial. By layering, regular applying and removing, through fragmentation of the individual picture planes. Although my paintings are two-dimensional surfaces - like the mirror image or the display - their analogue process of creation and the texture of the paint add a tactile dimension - they do not close themselves off to touch. The pictures' aesthetic of decay is reminiscent of peeling house façades and addresses processes of wear and tear that cannot, in principle, affect the digital. The approach to the finished picture, which often takes several months, is contrary to the speed of social media.
Along these lines of thought, I understand my pictures as mind maps in the sense of maps of inner thought worlds, as a coinciding of my subject with the objects, as a dissolution of the objects and their contours, as a camouflage with the world."
