Matthias Esch. I am interested in language as a system.

I am interested in language as a system which we use and which surrounds us. Words structure our thoughts and therefore our perception. Nevertheless there ist a immanent gap between the image and the word, between us and our surrounding. I create archaic paintings, signifier for this condition. These archaic, symbolic images preserve and highlight the interval between image and language. Others are more connected to system structures, flirting with power, or create signs we have to refill.
