Martin Dorsch Dorsch

Martin Dorsch’s recent works benefit from the particular qualities of tape to produce nearly perfect shapes – dead straight lines, precise angles and uniform surfaces. However, this apparent perfection is a utopia, as no matter how exact the work appears it contains errors and anomalies. The applied technique of adding layer upon layer intensifies this effect both in the actual shapes and surfaces as well as by concealing, penetrating and interrupting. As a result, the utopia of perfection is terminated. At the same time this is exactly how the works’ intensity develops. Basic shapes are combined, connected and pierced into being more and more complex and dynamic. Vibrating forms and colors envelop the viewer while they search for the overriding structure.
