For Wolfgang Voegele, the figuration dissolves in the composition; for him it is about getting to a state in the paintings, where he can paint without thinking. Voegele works with form in an area between abstraction and figuration, using similar forms in an unpredictable pattern. The artist compares his practice to the automatism of Robert Motherwell, an American painter who formed part of the New York School of abstract expressionism. He elaborates: "There is always a sense of figuration in the paintings, and it is never completely abstract. The forms are always, in some way, figurative by themselves. But together with the other forms in the picture, they dissolve in the composition."
