Gerd Lieder, an artist and, among other things, an art historian, spans the broad spectrum from basic topics of the art science to philosophy to a contemporary exploration of human perception. With the highest technical and content precision, he brings seemingly unstructured shapes and colors into overarching, perfectly harmonious harmony. Through his individual, well-defined imagery he manages to convey the essential nature of art: art is a reflection, a reflection of reality, or rather, what we perceive as reality. It is our perception that shapes reality, so the reality is always subjective and cannot be determined according to generally applicable standards. Lieder reminds us of this by dissolving, reflecting and flowing into one another the forms we are talking about. The point of this game with perception is that there is no solution and everything is possible at the same time. The answer is not provided by the artist, but the viewer has to find it for himself. So life is.
Since 2000 his theme is about the visual experienceable world by means of reflection in different media like foils, water, glass, mirrors, and reality.
The first “picture” in human history was a reflection - in a puddle, a still lake or a water hole. And the reflection of a bowed-over early face may have contributed significantly to the realization of man: The self-performed movements and grimaces are also the mirror image again - so I have to be what it looks at me. The key phrase is not “Cogito, ergo sum”, but “Video, ergo sum” - I see (me), therefore I am. - Gerd Lieder (https://gerdlieder.com/de/rezensionen/)
