Lives and works in Munich and Berlin

Hans Joerg Dobliar's works are like a fleeting narrative developed from several themes and layers that moves along a fine line between reality and fiction, between knowing and not knowing. His imagery plays with the repertoire of earlier avant-garde artists. The crystalline forms are reminiscent of the art of cubism, the overpainting of the experiments of surrealists. The artist examines the possibilities of rebuilding and new interpretations, explores the limits of the accessibility to the content of his paintings, raises the question of the influence and power of images in today's media landscape. Through his hasty overpainting and the resulting traces of paint drips, Dobliar's spontaneous brush stroke is always in evidence in his work.

Hansjoerg Dobliar found the "templates" for this series at a flea market in Rome during a stay at the Villa Massimo. They are pages from the magazine "Epoca" and "Oggi" from the 1960s and 1970s.
