"In his works, the Cologne painter and conceptual artist R.J.Kirsch reflects technical progress, its often deceptive brilliance and its natural failure. Profiles, deformations and fragments become the material for artistic debate. Energy, kinetic energy, the affects a surface, leaves its traces. Kirsch celebrates deformation as a design principle in old-masterly painting. His folds often appear to the viewer as "experimental protocols", as they show the traces of the forces acting on them.
A second presentation focuses on pumpkin-sized sculptures whose shadow projections in coloured light create a quasi virtual space."
