Blind Vision

Group show initiated and realized by Matthias Mayer und Maik Schierloh in cooperation with Treptow-Ateliers e.V. – from 11.11.22 to 13.11.22 – Wilhelminenhofstr. 83-85 12459 Berlin –

…an atmosphere of departure or dependency in an alternative and avant-garde sense. For others, it was merely a projection surface for profane economic interests pushed by global market events. There was never a vision for all. This blind vision is now reflected in a place of action. …deceptive, the awakening already sits in the neck, like a drug that slowly loses its effect. Because it all ends, and without romanticism. The artists soon have to go back to their nomadic way. Only that they are not nomadic… What could become, what could be? Why is it a blind vision?

#Paint-Elmar-Zimmermann

The work is one recent result of my artistic practice in the use of the useless, of leftovers, bycatch, findings.

Earlier this year, when all together everyone at home, I started to use the most powerless tool I could find on my computer: MS Paint—which still comes with Windows. This is a very simple pixel-based painting tool. I put up a tiny canvas in oktavo ratio and placed some of the program’s template icons—carefully choosing their position and colour, in just using the standard palette.

I liked the result, but did not stop there.

The weakness of pixels is the resolution. I wanted my picture to be defined and sharp, so I translated it into a vector graphic. The picture now is rendered in mathematic curves—no more fuzzy pixel-stairs, but it is infinitely scalable. Throughout this transfer the forms on the canvas became more fluid, the shapes formerly put one on top of the other were melting and connecting.

To bring this abstract thing into everyday life I chose to render it in Riso—a digital printing technique with high quality inks. So my processed picture found its place on warm sheets of paper as a screen print.

There are still some prints available. Get your #Paint here:

In the composition of her works, the painter Céline Adamo addresses moments of pictorial creation. They are exclusively made with lacquer paints, and are created according to different frameworks she has devised simultaneously and constantly in interdependence. Some paintings she realizes in a few minutes, others develop in a process lasting up to several years. Elmar Zimmermann, in his works, recalls established modes of our pictorial traditions, associates them in an incisive new way, and improvises both precious objects and entire spaces of perception. In doing so, he does not care about responsibilities and thus also questions the “job profile professional artist” as such. From their Berlin studios, the two edit a lucid dialogue reduced to a substantial visual installation: sober but not dry.

A catalog brochure will be published to accompany and complement the exhibition. The artist designed split catalog with 40 illustrations Céline Adamo Elmar Zimmermann #2 is available at Kunstverein Schwäbisch Hall.
