Gerwald Rockenschaub's work follows the principle of reducing elements, structures, and color contrasts to only the essential. The works of the radical minimalist are simple and precise but also complex. They range from the geometric abstract oil paintings of the early 1980s, which are associated with the Neo-Geo movement, to industrially produced Plexiglas panels and huge inflatable PVC objects, to his more recent computer-generated animations. Spare interventions within the architecture of the respective exhibition spaces reveal and invert the relationship between viewer, artwork, and space.
