Sur Pollen. Fragment. 2015

Rolf Nowotny’s work negotiates the materiality of the world and the language anchored to it by attempting to bridge the gap between concrete and psychic landscapes. Drawing inspiration from sources as diverse as evolution, material memory, architecture, the Victorian grotesque and the general uncanny, Nowotny explores the possibility that abstract thought reaches formulation through concrete, spatial experience.
