Lot Essay

"In Freischwimmer there is the most depth in the pictorial space. All associations with liquidity that the image and the name might suggest is made with light and without any liquids or other chemicals. It is important that these are not paintings, as the eye recognizes these as photographic the association machine in the head connects them to reality, whereas a painting is always understood by the eye as mark making by the artist. This connectedness of 'evidence' as in photographic reality, and an obviously painterly process frees them from being read only as a product of the artist's hand."
W. Tillmans quoted in D. Eichler, Wolfgang Tillmans: Abstract Pictures, Ostfildern, 2011, p. 24.
