Statement

“Frederik Eckenheim plays with that, what we generally describe as ›beautiful‹. These are reflected in his finished works of art, as well as the creation process. The oxidation process is created by mixing natural metal pigments, together with acidic chemicals such as hydrochloric and sulfuric acid. This creates a natural process in which structures with strong colours occur. Furthermore, his works play with the contrast from distance and closeness. From afar, they seem smooth, concrete and tangible. Upon a closer look, however, new worlds open up as the seemingly smooth surface becomes cracked and carries the impression of how something new develops out of a decayed one. Within the interpolation of dissolution and new beginnings lies an extraordinary beauty. It surprises the observer with an ambivalence occurring through the softness and harmony from a distance, yet it is combined with the brutal decomposition process from up close. This special result will inevitably trigger amazement and fascination.”

Dieter Rippel, member of the district council of Upper Bavaria
Cultural Department of the City of Munich

„Frederik Eckenheim spielt mit dem, was wir allgemein als ›schön‹ bezeichnen. Das spiegeln seine fertigen Bilder ebenso wider, wie der gesamte Schaffensprozess. Durch natürliche Metallpigmente in Verbindung mit ätzenden Chemikalien wie Salz- und Schwefelsäure wird ein Oxidationsprozess erzeugt. Auf natürliche Weise entstehen so Strukturen mit kräftigen Farben. Dabei arbeiten seine Werke mit dem Kontrast von Nähe und Distanz. Von weitem wirken sie glatt, konkret und greifbar. Bei näherem Hinsehen jedoch eröffnen sich neue Welten, die scheinbar glatte Oberfläche wird rissig und es lässt sich erkennen, wie sich aus dem Zerfallenen etwas Neues entwickelt. Im Zusammenspiel von Auflösung und Neuanfang liegt eine außergewöhnliche Schönheit. Sie überrascht den Betrachter durch eine Ambivalenz, die der Kombination aus Weichheit und Harmonie aus der Ferne und dem brutalen Zersetzungsprozess aus der Nähe geschuldet ist. Das besondere Ergebnis löst unweigerlich Staunen und Faszination aus.”

Dieter Rippel, Mitglied des Bezirkstags von Oberbayern
Kulturreferat der Landeshauptstadt München
