Benedikt Hipp // Bendedikt Hipp I

Benedikt Hipp’s (*1977) first survey catalogue shows his paintings in wonderful image quality and with numerous details. “Hipp contributes to a philosophy of life aimed at a true basis in the sense of Søren Kierkegaard, and lends it a contemporary and indeed strengthening, universally comprehensible shape, namely, in the form of aesthetics, ethics and religiosity. His mental abstraction grasps melancholy in a structural and methodical manner, and thus as a kind of ornament. He shifts the mood away from what can be grasped as concrete, grotesque and real, to a fascinating, almost spiritual relation of the individual in the dark light of the Saturnine.” (Gregor Jansen)
