Christoph Bucher (Dusseldorf) presents in his solo show When is enough enough? a selection of works from recent years.

The classical panel in painting, in the form of untreated plywood, is not only an image carrier for Christoph Bucher, but with his own random grain, also an essential part of both the working process and the finished painting. – The grain of the wood, becomes – sometimes more, sometimes less – part of the image composition which develops by placing one thin layer of water colour over the other. – The grain of the wood fuses with the water colour layers or opposes them. Within this, finding and discovering, not searching or constructing, are forming the core of Christoph Bucher’s work processes.

Initially working only in monochromatic layering’s of grey, Christoph Bucher introduced more and more colours over the last 2 years.

Interlaced, partly crystalline, partly woody, absurd and unknown spaces arise from the color layers and superimpositions, which constantly request to be conquered again and again by the eye of the observer and escape a final vision or recognition.
