Wolfgang Voegele's work shows a process from concept to intuition - always focussing the painting itself. Drawing on the very beginning of painting and art, Voegele creates an own vocabulary by using archaic and simplistic forms and lines. These compositions are based on a computer-generated sketch, which then are applied to the canvas - and fail by doing so. That failing in transforming sketch to painting is crucial for his work process: an accurate transformation is impossible and therefore fails, composition changes, painting sets in. Wolfgang Voegele herewith provokes a collision of concept and painting.
This approach can be seen within all of his work. Especially the black paintings seem to refer to print or etching at first appearance. But taking a closer look, an immediate form of painting will be revealed.
