Topography of time.

Gabriel Bur interprets thematically the quality of time in a material/spatial dimension. Time has a spatial as well as a so-called material and materialized component – the impression of time: time is space. Thus he elaborates a fanning out of time spaces - individual and local. Gabriel: “Everyone has time, and it is important how we use it. Because time is what we make of it.”

Jana Ritter, art scholar and freelance artist, writes on the artist: “... Gabriel combines playfully, lets (our perception) play. ... His used colours, materials, forms offer a new design, create their own dimensions in the work. ... His artworks show a joy of experimentation, which “in advance”  forms from the material, allows it to emerge, lets go along – perturbed-conceptual Creating in the original sense.”

Gabriel about his work: “I develop my works out from a very individually elaborated plasticity of the respective Material, whereby the thematic of the concept seeks its materials and colors independently for the work. In the spontaneity of the creative process, everyday objects and materials are often integrated into the work, in order to create both the concept as well as the character of the artwork. The viewer should be left a lot of room for their own interpretation, in order to develop a certain identification with the artwork.”
