Frank Nitsche “Baggage Europa”


poster for Frank Nitsche “Baggage Europa”

This event has ended.

Frank Nitsche’s works are composites of abstract and concrete visual language based on countless mass-consumed images distributed by the media and saturating contemporary society. Nitsche transforms motifs representing the origins of expression into shapes, repeatedly deconstructing and recreating them so that they are ultimately remade into abstractions with distinct forms. While this process begins as an arrangement of digital graphics, the fundamental geometric forms (lines and shapes) comprising single elements of the larger images are not simply recomposed into various shapes, but generate additional layers and dimensions on the screen.

This exercise in alerting the viewer to the pure geometric forms that make up the objects of our reality is not meant to create a birds-eye view of the world, but to give us hints of the ironies within our customs and consciousness. By holding up a mirror to contemporary visuals and their structures, Nitsche’s works also allude to Cubism and the Western art traditions that gave rise to structuralism. Emphasizing color and contrast, Nitsche redefines modern artists’ complementary color theories within the context of today, giving the images produced by visual effects of his works 100 years of depth.
