German artist D. E. Aderhold’s painterly oeuvre is impressive not only because of its scope, but because of its great rigour, reflectiveness and intensity. Any attempt to locate his painting within a conceptual system leads to the recognition that Aderhold’s work cannot be submitted to ordinary categorisations. With a stimulating ambiguity, he walks a fine line between figurative and abstract painting, between artistic intentionality, experimental openness and chance. The pre -representational, emotional quality of the color is fundamental to the mood of the image. Dynamism is a product of dissonance—whether in the clash of acid green and crimson or in the visual clamor of hectic mark-making against a tranquil stain. These kinds of dissonances are found throughout Aderhold’s work and they bring to the fore a visual representation of his search for order in a seemingly disorderly world. The works are serious explorations of color, form and gesture. Through his work, Aderhold attempts to bring together those aspects of human experience which might seem irreconcilable. Cacophony and silence, chaos and order, gentleness and ferocity. Within the paintings, the familiar and everyday are transformed into a completely new and mysterious, idiosyncratic world. Though his work deals in duality, it is the unity of heart, mind and hand that makes Aderhold’s work coalesce into a deeply generous and surprising field of visual experience.
