Artist: Julius Hofmann

Julius Hofmann is a child of the media, yet as a painter he practices the import of images considered to be obsolete back to the canvas. Thus painting also represents a memory of databased images, not as an archive for them but as their reflection.

Thus painting also represents a memory of databased images, not as an archive for them but as their reflection. And when HD technology makes for optimum screen definition, then Hofmann very recently responds with increasingly dough-like forms, as might occur with glass slide projections: in the heat buildup, Newtonian rings join poor focus, which coalesces the motifs in a soft, psychedelic play of color. Julius Hofmann can operate sure-footedly in the field of electronic media. While doing so, in order to document his confident treatment of the same, his processing mode is infantilization, a form of spirited ego demonstration that ignores the professional aspect as well as the “courtesy” in social intercourse. The formation of identity in this attitude toward work indicates distance to the popular medium and the corresponding user codex. The playful aspect dominates the instructions for use and user control. As his opposite, the easel demands more creative as well as physical power of Hofmann than the mouse click.

    Beautiful work, Julius! Great layout and wonderful app. Still jitters on a few occasions but hopefully an update will improve that.
