About the work

Daniel Lergon
German , b. 1978
Follow

Spurred by his curiosity toward scientific conundrums, Daniel Lergon experiments with light effects and chemical reactions. Although he calls himself a painter, he rarely uses paint. In early works such as Cold Fire (2008), he applied transparent lacquer to high-tech fabrics, exploring optics and perception, while in Lapetus (2010), he used retro-reflective materials to highlight the contrast between light and dark. In recent works, he has combined elemental metals like powdered copper, zinc, and oxidized iron with water to form ephemeral patterns. Lergon believes in a phenomenological approach to the experience of an artwork, maintaining that a painting’s space functions as an eigenraum, or “own space,” in which one has a personal reaction to physical matter.
