Untitled (Runde Tafel, blau), 100 x 100 x 5 cm, 2013
Gabriel Braun (b 1982) lives and works in Berlin. In the long tradition of abstraction, he creates a fascinating aeshtetic with his woodcuts.
The artist uses geometrical forms such as circles, triangles or rectangles as motives, forms not bound by time. The motives are repeated however in varying colours. As a result of the serial arrangement of the woodcuts above and next to each other, a special rhythm arises.
The geometrical compositions have a sensual impact, since the wood grain and tiny woodchips on the prints leave traces. The shapes blur slightly and appear irregularly frayed and consequently turn picturesque.
