Gerrit Groteloh (gergro)

Gerrit Groteloh's series „Run's Poetry“ are abstract images made from nylon stockings. Compositions that do not refer to something seen; rather, they are developed out of the logic of the layers of fabric. The tension and dramatic quality contained in these images is built out of the shimmering fore- and backgrounds, positive and negative forms, light and shade. These surfaces seem complex and three-dimensional; they change with the point of view and even imply movement.

Hallo Gerrit,

mir gefällt deine Technik, deine Bildwerke.

Sie wirken auf mich rund, filigran und sensibel, die Farb-
komposition ganz wunderbar und, Sie sind einfach Anders
in all dem was es gibt. Sehr schön.

Alles Gute,
Ulea
