About Ouroboros 2018 sw, 08
The work Ouroboros (No. 8) comes from the monumental edition Ouroboros - Im Kreis Gehen from 2018; there are only a few copies of this coveted edition left.
The material Günther Uecker works with here is extraordinary: It is a terragraphy, that is, a work on which real sand has been applied. The resulting haptic, grainy materiality of the black paint is fascinating! Rare for editions Ueckers is also the carrier of the work, because it is a canvas, stretched on stretcher frame - this emphasizes the painting character of the work.
The theme of the work Ouroboros - Going in circles is circling, meditative circling, circling life, etc.. Again and again Günther Uecker has dealt with this in his work and has chosen the circular form as a symbol for it. It is about the eternally recurring, the all-connecting: from the beginning to the end to the beginning ...
Ouroboros (No. 8) illustrates this: On the outside, a homogeneous, calm spiral form can be discerned; on the inside of the motif, on the other hand, there are restless, finger-painted structures. Chaos and order, disharmony and harmony - the work visualizes both and unites them.
It is an impressive, large-format work with depth, of which Günther Uecker made only 16 copies!
