Gregor Gleiwitz's large-scale paintings and his very precisely elaborated miniatures present an imagery between abstraction and almost figurative levels of meaning. Vibrant colour fields are ruptured by scratched, scraped, and painted surfaces as well as wild serpentine curves. The static effect of the soft, warm aura of the colours, defies the movement and mobility of the contours. The glazes are of varying thicknesses, and in some parts, their thinnest layers remind us of erased information and blurred memories, thus making a chronology visible. The titles of Gleiwitz's works depend on the date of their completion. Being created in intensive, continuous processes, his paintings reflect experiences of time, capturing a piece of reality.
