Fascinating paintings by SINN

The transparency of ink, the light reflections of the aluminium base and the score marks result in a floating spatiality as well as an undefined - mysterious depth. The lucent graphisms condense into polyphonic figures, who appeal to the viewer on multiple levels with regard to contents, stylistic and aesthetical." - Gerhard Charles Rump -

In the set of "STRINGS" for example - a thematically extensive, wide-ranged image-complex - the artist, well trained in logic and semiotics, attempts to visualize the psychodynamics of tones in basis and core. The methods applied are closely related to the process of musical composition and mathematics.
