In the mid 1980s Helmut Dorner emerged as one of the most significant abstract painters of his generation, achieving widespread recognition through major solo and group shows worldwide. Dorner has exhibited with the eponymous Konrad Fischer Galerie since 1988 and was included in the influential Documenta IX in 1992. The essence of Dorner’s work is a quest for a poetry of painting, a tension, a rhythm between colors and matter that result in feeling. The artist strives to bring painting back to its original aim: direct visual experience that leads to emotion and awakens the senses. Dorner suggests a visual experience, an experiment based not on chance, but on the infinite movement of thought.

Helmut Dorner (b. 1952, Gengenbach-Baden, Germany) lives and works in Karlsruhe. Dorner studied under Gerhard Richter at the Düsseldorf Art Academy from 1976 to 1982 and has been Professor of Painting at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Karlsruhe since 1990. He was the subject of solo museum exhibitions at Kunstmuseum Winterthur (2006), Josef Albers Museum (2006), Saarland Museum (2006), Carré d'Art - Musée d'art contemporain de Nîmes (1991) and Kunsthalle Bern (1990).
