Artist Wolfgang in der Wiesche -2

“The idea is to create a unity out of multiplicity, much like in music, where rhythm, harmony and melody combine to form a whole. It is probably no coincidence that the artist himself is a musician who cannot think of painting and music separately.
One can extend the motifs forwards and backwards and we don’t know where we are in the composition. This openness brings it into a permanent dynamic that we can understand and enjoy as freedom, even if it challenges us to decide for ourselves on a reading. Our own responsibility is an inseparable part of the essence of freedom. Confronting us with this ambiguity of the concept of freedom makes Wolfgang in der Wiesches’ painting immensely contemporary.”
Benjamin Dodenhoff (Curator, Ludwig Forum for International Art)

„With paradoxes, … not strictly, but playfully, works … Wolfgang in der Wiesche. He allies different motifs, styles and forms of expression in his paintings. In his works, writing and text become image, and images of very different kinds form themselves into a narrative that is never logical, never linear, but always associative and allusive.“ Michael Stoeber (art critic)
