Obfuscated Buoyancy Series
In a state of timelessness and vacuum, between happenings and conditions, I am looking for the possibility of security within the insecure, for calm without being aware of the next step ahead. Fog is obfuscating the view and thus removing the chance of gaining a grander perspective of one's environment. Is it possible to acknowledge the state of crisis as a normal and integral part of life? Grey symbolises crisis, whereas white holds the expression of truth and an infinite affirmation of life.
Without a point of reference there is no sense of orientation, yet in this space devoid of contrast there may be the chance of a clearer perception of one's actual self, the chance to conceive one's being beyond mere comparison - the spotless mind.
(There is)... the aim of creating something complete, whole and permanent. perfect in itself,
obvious and immaculate. With a grey picture, this ideal can be reached.
(Gerhard Richter, 2004)
