Michael Dohr

The relationship between man and nature is the central aspect of Michael Dohr’s work. In his often large-scale works, he addresses the merging of nature and technology. While considering this central theme, he works in an exciting alternation between abstraction and figuration. This is accompanied by deliberately contrasting pictorial elements, which are executed in a photorealistic manner, and non-representational, gesturally applied color sections. Grisaille elements that convey a metallic coolness are accompanied by bold colors and are unmistakably influenced by street art. Between the stencils, paste ups, and graffiti, the viewer can identify brushstrokes that reveal a dynamic application of paint. The paint drips and blots follow the principle of coincidence, and all the pictorial elements together evoke an emotional intensity by referencing the essential intention of street art: the disruption of public order as an indication of injustice.
