MARCO ZUMBE paints both on the front and back of canvasses with the use of marker-pens. Instead of using established techniques, he uses this uncommon approach for his abstract paintings. The alcohol based ink fuses with the canvas and creates a unique smooth result. Depth is created by the layers shining through from the canvas’ verso.The line as a shaping, pictorial element is an omnipresent motive. Marco Zumbe is interested in the observer’s perception and interpretation of lines. The moment when a line can be recognised as figure or object plays an essential role for him as an artist.
