Dirk Salz

Interested in more simple forms and color transparency, the works of Dirk Salz play with the impressions of depth, not imposed through complex planes or compositions, but their reduction. His images are placed on smooth surfaces which serve as metaphorical mirrors to the viewer, mirrors that reflect the viewers own position within space, and the possibilities of our relationship to it. Supremacist in their nature, these works open up an experience of shifting between various depths and planes, but at the same time keeping our own place next to them, not inside them; since the concept of reflection is inherent to Dirk’s artistic investigation of space. Besides exploring space, these works also impose a question of temporality and the role of time in our perception of space itself, therefore the entire world. Time is a category which comes before space, which is necessarily more internal and allows the outer space to be revealed.
