Thomas Ruff: d.o.pe.
26. November 2022 – 31. Januar 2023
Thomas Ruff’s solo exhibition at the Berlin gallery features the series, d.o.pe., where once again Ruff immerses viewers into the world of mathematics and additionally evokes his personal experience with psychedelic art of the 1960s and 1970s. Featuring fractal patterns that the artist generates with a specialized software program and prints on industrial carpets, the works illustrate Ruff’s constant striving to visually express the beauty of mathematics while representing his interest in the possibility of generating images that appear natural but are produced artificially. By further recalling the highly detailed and exuberant Northern Renaissance style of artists such as Hieronymus Bosch and Matthias Grünewald, Ruff interprets d.o.pe. as a reference to the fact that there are no limits to the artistic imagination.
