Frank Mädler Biography

Working within the realm of abstract realism, Frank Mädler juxtaposes colour, space, and sense of time in his compositions to blur the lines of reality and illusion. His experimentation with traditional technique conjures an ethereal quality to his work that is both alluring and hauntingly beautiful. '[...] his pictures arouse emotions without veering into pathos [...] He strives to concentrate on something 'essential' [...] and produces an atmosphere that makes the world outside the camera's frame appear irrelevant to the spectator.' – Katharina Menzel
