At first glance a seated eyeball may not seem in the least bit poetic. But by focusing on the simplicity of German painter Norbert Schwontkowski’s Pause (II), the balance between technique and image invites us to embark on a journey through the senses. Indeed, his oeuvre, based on an economy of colour and form, has been compared to Japanese haiku. Schwontkowsi doesn’t give it all away, but gives just enough to open up a dialogue with the imaginary.
