Thomas Dausell works primarily with black and white on canvas and paper.
Dausell's work is driven by change and transformation. He creates a space which is constantly moving. He captures the relation between construction and demolition in repeatedly interaction. He works spontaneously, catches the unforeseen in a process which is constantly changing. Space are being created and at the same moment destroyed. Recognizable elements are put together in an abstract landscape, in a way so that you sense that they are broken – but not unrecognizable.
The works enter a subtle, sophisticated way, where they still has a function. In his pictures you experience an alternate between expanse and room, which in a picture-technically way can guide or deflect the spectator: If you search for the illusion in the well-known you will constantly be reminded, that it is just an abstract painting. In his work Thomas Dausell makes contrasts meet in an aesthetically process: Simplicity opposite chaos, darkness opposite light, destruction opposite beauty.
