Dieter Borst reduces the „seen“, the „experienced“ and the „lived“ to a minimum. Disturbing attachments, which could divert of the essential point, has been omitted. Earthy and pastel shades are dominating his paintings, beside of the black color.
Bodies are broken up by him. These elements, stripped down to their basic forms, will be recompiled for looking at them as an abstracting memory of appearances in nature.
Even lines, apparently arranged, will be interrupted by energetically elements and color fields, which are resolving the harmony of these lines and at the same time bundle them up powerful.
Elements, which are repeated often, are the lines which are going out of the frame, defining themselves as energy.
