Ulrich Panzer

+ About the Artist

Ulrich Panzer was born in Bonn/Beuel, Germany in 1965. His wide-ranging artistic practice spans over 20 years.

Panzer's series of paintings springs from an intense work period that began in early 2010 and continues to this day. Building from a compositional practice rooted in a modernist concern with abstraction and colour the strong chronological, dynamic and photographic aspects of these new works create the suggestion of narrative. Together with their composition and organization of certain fields, they allow a wider range of interpretation. These works can be read as film stills, photographic sequences, or x-rays, parallels to ancient calendars, prayer wheels, cyclical unfolding of events, Nietzsche’s principal of “the eternal return of the same,” the cycle of creation and destruction. In this sense,Panzer's recent works deal less with formal aesthetic questions, but rather consider the role of memory, projection, and personal experience in our reading of the paintings.
