Every object defines itself in relation to its surroundings. With every movement we perpetually put ourselves in relation to our environment. And every of our movements creates an endless number of combinations of ourselves in this environment.
Through Julius Heinemann's pictorial gestures a volume of a space becomes visible. Leaving traces the artist sets a rhythm to his surroundings. Marks come together, create tensions and put spatial plains in new relation to each other. Through the intervention of light – a dimension of time – these traces and marks come to life. The light allows them to connect and to spread out, tracing a territory; a territory that contains an endless number of dynamic connections and combinations, based on the simple formal relations of the room. Painting turns into an accessible space, giving us hints and at the same time questioning the nature of our surroundings. Painting becomes the abstraction of a moment – the here and now.
277 x 336 x 391 is an attempt to render the holistic reality of a specific space.
