Ralf Bohnenkamp’s artwork enriches the scientifically cool cosmos of minimalist painting with a sensual and emotional element. Though the pictures in their simple stylistic idiom and reduced color spectrum speak of physical principles that are the basis of our material world, they transform themselves through color-layering, a material presence and visible lines in the paint. Their clearness disappears, straight lines become irregular, the safe becomes precarious--this is where the meditation process begins. The pictures reveal a quiet color poetry that cannot be solved rationally by the viewer.
