Raphael Pollack

Born in 1942 - United States


biography under completion

“In the paintings of Raphael Pollack, we encounter a rare stroke of luck. It's the luck of the unadulterated view into the world of painting as pure painting. It's the game, if not the battle of colour, form and light, which takes place in the works of Raphael Pollack in all seriousness in front of our eyes. It is the struggle of the protagonists appearing in his pictures, which are and want to be nothing else than themselves. Pollack's images don't represent, they are. It is the struggle of colour, form and light in seemingly intractable conflicts in which Pollack leads them and their dissolution with which he surprises himself and us in almost inconceivable ways.

The paintings of Raphael Pollack lead us into experiences that are comparable with the observation of the forces of nature coming to rest after they have clashed into each other unleashed. They lead us into a world full of contradictions, which have settled in states of great tension and depth. It is the beauty occurring in the resolution of the contradictions, which touches us." by Horst Hummel
