Christian August’s (*1977 in Halle (Saale), based in Berlin) abstract expressive color worlds move in the play of intuitively and in a fast ductus set gray tones and pastel color gradients. Just as his works are created in rapid physical movement, they also remain in motion for the viewer: his color worlds glow and bubble, diffuse, organic and al-ternating between loud and quiet, rough and smooth on the surface of the picture and seem so ethereal that you want to reach into the picture to try out where the color haze ends and the material begins. August consciously accepts the fact that the use of rapid gestures also means getting invol-ved in randomness: He is interested in finding beauty in banality, despite or precisely because of spontaneity, whether in painting, his wall collages, or his inspirational field of the city.
