The new paintings of Lars Teichmann reflect the ambiguity that is culturally allotted with the color black. Black is central in the use of line and color as a way of forming meaning in the large-sized canvases. Teichmann’s paintings are just as melancholic as they are dynamically alive. The reduced color palette flows into vibrant energetic brush strokes: In a powerful gesture monochrome black is punctuated by white lines, wide swings, speckles and dissolving surfaces.

The striking chiaroscuro bridges the gap to Rembrandt, but also to the dramatic mood lighting of Caravaggio or the mystical, mysterious, almost expressionistic acting late Mannerist pictures of El Greco, the tense relationship of light and shadow comes in, to represent the full range of mental sensations. At the same time, Teichmann’s painting always remains semi-abstract. His visual worlds act objectively, without being too caught up in the concrete. [Extract : Kunstagenten]
