„Burning down the earth“ (Kuratorin MARA CAMPANER, Venice(Italy))

In Joachim Strock's research there is an evocative will, which seems to take responsibility for a formless form, nevertheless tending to find its own recognizability. He still situates himself in the realm of abstraction, but without getting caught up in the restlessness typical of experimentalism, and recovering calibrated atmospheres that bring to accomplished realization the call of a mental landscape, where the exemplary quality of a wholly subjective reinvention creates spatial illusions elaborated through an intelligent and conscious expressiveness. This artist's paintings have the quality of an ever-developing matter, glowing and fading in variegated chromatics, creating magmatic assemblages of absolute dynamism (Sep. 2022).
