Deconstructivism is understood to encompass a specific form of thought and a specific way of dealing with materials. Freiwald’s art is distinguished by its impressive manner of bringing together both sides. First, he comes to grips with the material foundation of painting, by singeing, cutting, or sawing the picture support. The remaining space is pure pictorial space and is entirely subject to the expressive quality of the planes of colour filling it. His works are thus always new ways of presenting an intriguing dialectic. They alternate between material and effect, inquiring into the relationships between the object and the phenomenal expressive force of art. The exhibition catalogue captures this lively philosophy in a sublimely aesthetic form. It shows how thought and vision overlap in Freiwald’s work to become truly visionary.
