The sensual and simultaneously conceptual visual creations of the Berlin-based painter and sculptor Detlef Waschkau generate space and interspace between mediums and materials. The metropolis is his stage, the never-resting organism of big cities, seas of buildings, urban canyons, asphalt, and big city jungle. In this exhibition publication, New York, Beijing, and Berlin come together – dense street chaos, everything colliding: a picture of the everyday confrontation of people and city.He juggles with contradictions, the hardness of wood, the delicacy of painting, figuration and abstraction, harmony and dissonance, the reflectivity of light, and space and colour.
