Product Description

Andreas Seltzer's drawings are grotesques that alternate between caricature and black humour, between horror and magic, between recourse to mannerism and carnivalesque inventions. The colours black, red and white form the basis of this work. This reduced choice of colours is connected with the intention to increase the effect of the pictures by sparing use of means. The black functions as an arsenal that provides all possible weightings to give the pictures - depending on the motif - weight or sketchy lightness. Red, on the other hand, plays the traditional role of the attention-getting signal, providing orientation in the genre of hidden object pictures. The white, composed of outline-like, splinter-like, precisely captured figurations, shows upward-looking views, as well as through views: against densely checked backgrounds, these elements become actors who make those parts of the picture dance.
