about this work

This unique work of Martin Neumaier is one of his multilayered collages, in which he carries out an intense examination of European colonialism and imperialism. He starts from a found page of old book, and glues-on graphic elements to dynamize the printing ink of the lettering and depictions, and translate them into constructivist and abstract imagery

about Martin Neumaier

°1970, Hürth (DE) – lives and works in Frankfurt (DE)

Yellowed, moldy pages are the support material for Martin Neumaier’s multilayered collages, in which he carries out an intense examination of European colonialism and imperialism. Glued-on graphic elements dynamize the printing ink of the lettering and depictions and translate them into constructivist and abstract imagery. At second glance the works acquire an additional component and become superimpositions of different cultures.

The books that Neumaier uses as the foundation for his works are textbooks and science books from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries, which experience a reinterpretation, adaptation, and redefinition in their processing: in their palimpsest, the narrow representations on the pages achieve an aesthetic freedom that also duplicates their dimensions of meaning to ultimately acquire any number of other possible ways of perceiving them visually.
