Biography

In his paintings, Nico Sawatzki creates complex imaginary spatial constructions that create an enormous depth effect through densification and dissolution on different image planes with complex, multilayered construction and simultaneous de-construction of layers of paint.
The series „future parts“ focuses on elements that could be interpreted in his previous work as architectures. Pieces of these structures reminiscent of facades are rearranged and receive a more intensive spatial effect through folding and clearly delimited areas to the surrounding space. The resulting constructions are presented in an empty background to create an even stronger focus on them.
In his parallel second work series, Sawatzki re-stages the empty space surrounding „future parts“. He picks up on memories of moods, incisive images from childhood and the near past. Mostly, the result is a kind of landscape that takes up these moods. Tension fields with partly disturbingly staged shadows or light sources, monochrome coloring and not clearly defined structures should be complemented by the own imagination and emotional world and thus be able to become a very personal, specific memory.
