Marc von der Hocht‘s abstract painting successfully mirrors our (urban) lives shaped by dynamics and speed, industrial mass production and digital realities, reflecting techno beats and strobe light, noise (yet with subtle nuances in between), cityscapes flashing by, industrial aesthetics – i.e. of the new technoworld dance temples – and the transition into different spaces of (colour-) experience and realities. This radical but carefully considered mixing of partitioned series of images from glossy magazines (architecture and lifestyle, fashion and automotive/technology, aero- and astronautics), when creating collages in his studio, has stimulated his painting. Today, both genres keep influencing each other and can no longer be separated. The glossy brochure has found its counterpart in industrial high-gloss varnish; the mirroring of the ambient space has become a calculated component of the picture. When reviewing the pictorial works of the last few years (best presented in the artist portfolio on the gallery’s homepage), people are surprised to see how fresh and expectantly, how well-placed (a bold painted statement, as it were) each picture is put into focus.
