Colour Windows

An Exhibition of Paintings by Peter Dittmar at Gaya Art Space July 31 August 30, 2009.

(7/11/2009) The great pioneers of abstraction of the early 20th century were enthralled by philosophical and mystical concerns. For them, abstraction was the visual formulation of a spiritual quest.

In this same vein, Peter Dittmar's month-long exhibition in August 2009 - "Colour Windows" represents a spiritual quest, evoking Hindu-Buddhist cosmological symbols. Dittmar's latest works reflects a different phase of that quest. The simplicity Peter Dittmar achieves is deceptive; the results are much more complex than it may initially appear. These paintings are, in the final analysis, an achieved form of learning and meditation.

His current abstract geometric paintings symbolize the encounter of the beholder with the absolute stillness of "The Void." Peter Dittmar says he is following the "Golden Section," also known as "Divine Proportions," combined with a sophisticated play of tonal coloration that takes us ever deeper into the ultimate Stillness or Void.

Peter Dittmar, is a respected artist in his native Germany, as well as Australia and Bali where he spends half his time.

His work demonstrates that abstraction is alive and well. Nourished by the sources of both Eastern philosophy and Western knowledge, Dittmar enables us to put aside both form and color, giving us, in the words of the Artist, "the chance to blend ourselves into the Void and Stillness of the cosmic"
