Zabriskie points – A cartography of fragments
“Wolfgang Herbold transforms existing visual results like photographs, Illustrations, screen shots, he is using digital processes leaving hardly any hint about, what has been the surface before. The microcosm of his images is fragmented and gives expression to the pleasure of de-hierarchysation.Everything is in a state of flux, caught in processes of metamorphosis. The malleability of the reality stored in the image is celebrated sensuously and the transformation of all visible phenomena is declared to be the sole constant. The pull of the fragment unfolds a startling appeal and suggests the beauty of ever new, unstable compounds. The elements enter into new relations, each particle can become an attractor and radiate a force field which holds the embedded graphic particle right up to the periphery. Relations act at a distance, everything is connected with everything else, but the family relations remain extremely distanced. A segment of a circle leads, on a long leash, a black scribble which approaches an orange patch of colour which in turn had its analogue origin in the medical image of a blood test.”

New Reality, Science and Confusion
The creative use of all image producing appliances finds its resonance in the chaotic and yet organized worlds of drawings. About the experiences in daily life, between order and chaos the viewer is sent on a discovery trip. It’s the creation of a world through free and organized brushstrokes. The awakening and creation of reduced, but yet fascinating, surreal elementary worlds. The scientific technical profane iconography is hereby experimentally and playfully used as basis.
