The recent works of art by Axel Reusch could be named pictorial objects. Their object character remains just this side of painting. In a depicting, copying relation, the artist refers to “profane” objects of everyday life, objects “off the street”. The selection of the objects is fragmentary and intuitive. At the same time, the works can be read independent of the motifs and interpreted on their own. Their structure appears open and hermetically closed at the same time. In the context of art history, they refer to abstract art as regards the language of their forms and their association space, at the same time they also refer to representational art as regards their representation character.
