Julius Heinemann




Julius Heinemann investigates the physical, neurological and cultural structures upon which the perception of the world is traditionally based. The relationship between how the eye sees and how the body moves and behaves exposes the issue of subjective individual perception, the construction of reality, and interactions with others (subjects and objects).

Based on the study of time and space, and through the experience of colour, light, shape or line, Heinemann constantly explores how to create new abstract tools to understand perception in its flow of now-ness. The artist structures these elements like vocabulary and uses it in his paintings, drawings, installations, books and every other type of media he experiments with. This process serves as a starting point for new ways of understanding the human condition – a social, subjective, individual reality.
