Markus Saile

Markus Saile's work convenes the space of painting, in a subtle interplay between the space where it is situated, the space it represents and the space it constructs in dialogue with architecture. Beyond the in-situ and the context, it is an investigation into painting in volume, the depth of the surface, and the extension of this practice into a performative field of action.

Broken colors, diluted in oil with turpentine, applied in numerous layers on a small-format wooden background – Markus Saile's works are intangible, fleeting, abstract, whereby a painterly gesture may develop figuratively without ever becoming concrete. The gestural structures in the pictures function as agents who, through their interrelated movements, open up interrelationships of space and time.
