Biography

Power and Powerlessness visual perception

A collagist presents himself:
Christoph Klein’s collages are the results of a process of analysis and synthesis. They lead us to power and powerlessness of visual perception in mind.

Our policy is to interpret the rational comprehension revoked by existing experience, makes us aware of a limited range of linear thinking. Thus, a promised image, that upon closer examination in «a flat surface covered with colours in a certain order», decays, as a mere attractant that causes us to perceive mystery of the object.

Regardless of such formal similarities there is an overarching effect of collagen in a relief of seeing knowledge in favor of looking. For «The aim of art is to impart sensation of the objects, as they are perceived and not as recognition».
