Thomas Kitzinger's work has been characterized by a continuous occupation with the autonomy of painting since the beginning of 1990. Today the German painter, born in 1955, lives and works in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany.
The world of objects
Thomas Kitzinger's motifs are from everyday life - they are banal and often representational. In his paintings he analyzes their surface, materiality and relationship with each other. The environment of the motifs is hidden and fragmented. The image content appears to be frozen. He reveals nothing about the use of objects, they contain nothing narrative and no symbolic reading. Kitzinger emphasizes the pure presence of the objects. And her forced presence does not increase her being, but her artificiality. Everything that is real, everything that exists is denied, because Kitzinger paints, i.e. depicts, and does therefor does not reproduce.
