About the artwork:
Each object is in it’s own orbit, leaving or entering the frame, overlapping or confronting each other. 3D objects contrast the flat background.
Robert Nitschmann on- Unconscious series
The goal is to create a surreal atmosphere by approaching the painting like a collage.Using both, artificially created structures and natural objects add to the feeling of the intangible. All the elements are painted in a traditional style. This painting shows three different objects, that are arranged in a collage-like manner. It is not clear if they are floating above or in front of the abstract background thus giving no indication of the relation to it. The head of David that seems to enter or leave the frame on the right side can easily be recognised. In contrast the spectator can see two rather indefinable objects to the left. Although the eye can understand the structure, the mind can’t.
