Resonance and Perception: Unfolding Narratives in Contemporary Art

Philipp Kummer writes about his work:

While I am sitting in the studio a helicopter passes by my window.

My cat is staring at some birds.

And I think one day I should have a copy paste artist statement at hand for stuff like this.

But I kinda like it personal.

Its the same with painting really.

Its about resonance and being in the moment.

While you are working and also while you are absorbing.

Thats what I am really doing I think. Providing a reason to be aware of what you are looking at.

I like the idea of a narrative that only unfolds in the spectators mind.

The infinite power of our own perception cant be stressed enough and especially art should hold your hand only so far.
