Master Pupil of Gerhard Richter at Kunstakademie Düsseldorf
Dennis Löw focuses in his works around the theme of abstraction of the experiential
nature. With its picturesque and photographic expression he creates new visual
ideas. They make the non-visible new experienced by dealing with the
aesthetics of the elements. The microcosm is exempted by painting and
photography, and transformed into a new dimension.
Gerhard Richter used in its abstract expressive images the squeegee to make the invisible visible by applying layers with the squeegee on the paint.
Dennis Loew goes back to the middle of abstract painting itself, to do research on the painting. In his serial photographys he duplicated elements from his paintings, enlarged them and creating new independent works.
This approach is reminiscent of the material analysis of a chemist who studied elementary that he combines in his test tubes. The painter Dennis Löw researches with photographic means on his canvas, enlarged to document the item to the procedural aspect and make about photography intense painting experience.
In this way it makes use of photography as a means to contemporary abstract expressionism in painting and photography to explore.
