Thoralf Knobloch works the subject and any suggestion of narrative become secondary to the formal elements of the
painting, so that a work such as Blaue Baracke, 2004 is less a sociological comment on the scarred landscape of the former Eastern Germany than a meditation on composition, form and colour. Despite this, these paintings invite the viewer into the pictorial space,He is particularly interested in the way in which painting ultimately involves turning experienced reality into constructed abstraction through the framing of the subject, the transference of photographic composition onto canvas, the selection of colour and finally the application of the paint, each step a conscious departure from experience.
