TEXT / ABOUT

IN HIS COLOURFUL WORKS, MARIUS SEIDLITZ ADDRESSES THE COMPLEXITY OF THE CLAIMS TO THE SELF. WHAT IS BEAUTY? IS THERE PERFECTION? HOW MUCH IS THE DENIAL OF THE UNMISTAKABLE I TO FIND ANY RECOGNITION? SEIDLITZ'S ARTISTIC CREATION/PAINTING IS FORMALLY SHAPED IN MANY WAYS: SKILL AS AN ENGRAVING MASTER AS WELL AS FROM THE DESIGN-PRECISE APPROACH OF THE DESIGN AND THE FREE CREATIVE USE OF SPRAY TECHNOLOGY.

HIS EXPRESSIVE IMAGES OFTEN SPRING FROM DIVERSE WOMEN'S BODIES THAT ARE DELIBERATELY IMPERFECT ARE SHOWN. THE VIEWER SEES COLORFUL CURVES, MULTI-LAYERED NUDITY IN ALL THE GARISH CONTRADICTIONS – BETWEEN ATTRACTION AND REPULSION. BUT ALWAYS MULTIDIMENSIONAL, ALWAYS DYNAMIC AND NEVER TOO ACCURATE. BECAUSE BEAUTY IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER. ENTANGLED BODIES, HINTED LIMBS AND LIPS SINK INTO COLOR-INTENSIVE SURFACES AND DYNAMIC LINES.

WITH ACRYLIC PAINT AND SPRAY PAINTS, SEIDLITZ PUTS THE SELF AND HOW IT PRESENTS ITSELF TO THE TEST. IN HIS WORKS HAVE NO 1A NOSES AND NO RETORT BREASTS, BUT THE VERSATILITY OF THE IMPERFECT. ANYONE WHO SEES HIS PICTURES WITH THE HEARTS FEELS THE BEAUTY OF VULNERABILITY AND TORN – SEES THE SIMULTANEITY OF DIFFERENT PROPORTIONS AND NEEDS OF A PEOPLE. HIS BODIES CAN ONLY BE NAKED, BECAUSE THE SOUL SHOWS ITSELF WHEN IT IS NAKED. THE HUMAN BEINGS ARE COMPLEX AND SIMPLE AT THE SAME TIME, THEY ARE ALWAYS IN A PROCESS OF BECOMING.
