The Cologne based painter Ulrich Wellmann presents his recent waterclours at this independent artist led project space. Wellmann affected, shaped and extended the view on temporary colourpainting. He occupies himself with elementary questions on painting and offers solutions in imageand paint. In this process, the substrate of the painting starts to play a more important role.In his new watercolour works Wellmann allows the paper to be liberated from its usual, twodimensional function. Like this, it easily catches anyone's attention through individual form and striking material characteristics. These qualities are created by folding, scratching, cutting, twisting and tearing the paper. This is a process usually done before painting, which plays with the appeal of the reasonable. The features of touching the paper will always stay openly visible. They affect the process of a work by sending impulses that guide the artist in his way of painting. Ulrich Wellmann responds to these sensual notes with his colouring in a careful and sensible way, allowing an image to develop. These watercolours do not only refer to themselves. They make their wall, their light, their space and their social surrounding become an emotional quality. Now they belong here.
