"Geometry with a difference" - Exhibition at Ilmenau University Library

Jochen Walter
Mit ihrem Schwung übertragen die farbenfrohen Bilder des Suhler Malers Jochen Walter eine ansteckende Lebensfreude auf den Betrachter

"Geometry with a difference" - the library of the TU Ilmenau is exhibiting abstract geometric artworks by Suhl-based painter Jochen Walter from October 10 to December 12. With their verve, the colorful paintings transmit an infectious joie de vivre to the viewer. The exhibition is open Mondays through Saturdays during the library's opening hours, and admission is free.

Characteristic of geometric abstraction is a non-representational pictorial content that is divided into individual areas by clearly recognizable lines. Objects such as squares, rectangles, triangles, circles, and ellipses are used, with an emphasis on the interplay of colors and shapes.

Walter's passion for abstract art was awakened in an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, but, "It takes real courage to realize that your calling in life is to be a painter," is how painter Jochen Walter describes the beginning of his professional life as a painter. At first it was difficult for him to live his vocation, "but sometimes life plays differently than you think and everything turns out fine."
