ARTIST OF THE GALLERY
Sascha Boldt explores new interpretations of different visual media through his serial bodies of work. The content of his works circles around the phenomenon of the imagination; they convey what otherwise revokes definition or verbalisation. To him art is a system of connection which permits the writing of different possibilities and forms. With this openness, art creates the most sustainable concept of collective reactions. "THE LIGHT OF ART IS IN YOUR HEART!", "IF YOU CHOOSE ART - ART CHOOSES YOU!" or "JUST SAY YES! THE STATE OF ART IS BORDERLESS!" are original soundtracks of his position.
