Work

Thorsten Dittrich’s compositions are brought to life by their many overlays and layers, which make it practically impossible to read the space logically. But despite these obstacles, everything continues to flow. The objects are engaged in a constant process of transformation, frozen in a morphing phase and just in the act of changing their current form again.
The artist evidently plays with the viewer’s abilities to interpret what he or she sees, and with our innate drive toward recognition: Shapes and surfaces that elude clear identification, but still recall the familiar, are used in multifaceted puzzles.
(Text excerpt, Dr.Emmanuel Mir, 2012)
