Marc von der Hocht’s paintings and collages appeal to the individual shapes, the language of forms, which can be traced at any time in all spheres of the product and everyday-life landscape, as it is a ‘child of its time’. The consistency with which the artist re-combines the ‘retrieved’ shapes has grown out of this spirit. For this reason his objects/sculptures are from the same mould, even if consisting of countless single parts. The same can be said about his paintings and collages, as these were created out of the spirit of discovering and experiencing our present time. It could not be fresher, more alive and closer to the pulse of time!
