About Matthias Pilsl

Matthias Pilsl was born in 1980 – he currently works and lives in Stuttgart, Germany.

In his work his intension is to explore the essence of composition. His deep engagement concernes not only the painterly composition which behaves coherent to the content-related discussion of the painting. It is the relationship between the whole and its parts – the echo from the perception of all senses – which reassemble in an abstract image at any moment in our lifetime. “We all are at any time in relationship” , the artist stated. Be it spatial, cognitive or in larger contexts – every moment generates a individual code.

To get closer to this idea, the paintings from Matthias Pilsl are on the one hand characterized by conciously set elements and randomly placed parts on the other. Established features and recurring elements clash on fresh progressive components.
He deals with a variety of classical subjects from the history of painting and integrates contemporary media such as computer, printing and photography through the whole draft process of the Artwork.
