Processes of Knowledge
The creation from a wealth of experiences constitutes a life of its own.
There are thousands of combinations available to us, which originate from thoughts and representations,
but it is possible only to explore just fragments of them.
Because of our essence, the effort to go over our own limits will fail.
My permanent time-varying development forces me under strong inner pressure to break my predetermined paths.
A symbiosis of thinking, experimenting and apparently complete representation is the foundation of my work.
In a stage of abstraction of accumulated, experienced data, for me it is important to explore possibilities furnished by transparency, space, technique and above all by composition.
The subject then enters into the viewer’s background. Even though, themes in my previous works built already a bridge to abstract expressions, since for me, that was a logical expression in my process of knowledge.
Moving myself in this multiple-split path combines both joy and torture.
I feel especially attracted getting into the variety of representation possibilities. At the same time, this opens the possibility to move into spheres, which will eventually be blocked by only one-side parenthesis,
since tolerance for me is a guarantee to support the way to knowledge.
Changes during the time of different periods of creation means recognition. But to give tolerance its right place,
knowledge can never become non plus ultra.
Horst Uhlemann, 1996
