Stefan SAALFELD: The abstract series are a mix and assemblage of very different “materials” and can be read as abstract spheres and spaces. Some of these elements are very new and fast (like the plain color stripes), others have a long history of being worked over and over again. Most work is done with digital tools, but I also use hand-painted forms as stencils. I’m interested in a complexity and a variety of elements and different textures that are mostly well known in abstract art, but I give them a kind of weird and even rotten twist. . . . It’s a kind of recycling process, taking some leftovers and bringing them back to life.
