Tilman started to create the series ‘HOCs’ in 2006. These works vary in dimensions.
Recognizing the architectural potential of the ‘Stacks’ series, Tilman developed the underlying idea further, which resulted in the works titled ‘HOC/House of Color’.
These painted objects almost resemble modernist buildings – just on a smaller scale - opening up spaces to explore the ephemeral quality of light within a given spatiality. They can be seen as a ‘marriage’ between architecture and light.
‘HOCs’ are generally composed of hand-painted aluminum profiles. They can be experienced either hanging on the wall or being set on a table or plinth.
