Andreas Kotulla works in the areas of painting and drawing that are approximate to each other. He uses color more as an object-like means. Their pasty, gestural and often reduced drawing mission also always implies the constitution and visual blurring on the image to be reproduced. The artist very often uses prints reproductions of photographs, which he translates constructively into his medium.
His artistic gesture is adapted to the view and makes the imagery appear in a way of vision. Kotulla’s works are often uncommentless, unpretentious and humorous, in a subjective selection that removes the individual motif as fragmentary from the world.
For the window pane and the space of the gallery, Andreas Kotulla will bring together a series of black-and-white drawings of group photos and “events” in an installation that shows us subjective, humorous and mysterious assumptions of the artist. In Kotulla’s translation, the processes and results of human society seem irritating, downright exemplary and full of blank spaces. The egocentric, physical separation of the individuals appears inbridgeable, even in the embrace, in the picture.
