About

Markus Blattmann

Born in Germany, Karlsruhe. Living in London. Colour is radiant power, energy that influences us in a positive or negative way, whether we are conscious of it or not. The

effect of colour should be experienced and understood not only visually, but psychologically and symbolically as well. (Johannes Itten) My paintings and prints

activate many layers, both on the surface and far below. They are not representational in a narrow sense, create no defined images. Instead, they generate

associations, revive memories and emotions, unfold ideas. What Paul Klee once said in a general sense about abstract art is especially valid here: Abstract art does

not represent that which is visible, it creates visibility.
