About the art
Boecker begins each new work by penciling in his composition. But the work ultimately is about the colors and layers that will evolve on the surface over time. He builds his paint up in a slow process, adding layers of color then partially removing them, allowing the echoes of erosion to remain visible in the final work. The gradual accumulation of pigment conveys a visual sense of depth, while also communicating a bittersweet emotional feeling that time is passing.
Boecker derives inspiration from opposing forces he perceives in the visual world. He brings out harmonies and tensions between light and dark hues, and between fields of unbroken color and worn down layers. He finds guidance for the next painting from the final state of his previous painting.
Based in: Heidelberg
Arvid Boecker is a German abstract painter whose work mobilizes the tensions and harmonies that exist between color relationships, textures, and the processes of time.
