Über mich und meine Kunst
Dieter Borst documenta el arte Biografie DIETER BORST - bo Born on 12th of May 1950 in Schramberg.... His world is the informal painting. The reality in his paintings is reduced to structures which are – parted from the basic motif – developing a fully self-reliance. The most important element in his paintings is the line, carried through colored segments.

International exhibit among others in: New York, Fort Lauderdale / Miami, Cologne, Gran Canaria Paintings in official possession: City of Freudenstadt – Kurhaus Dieter Borst reduces the „seen“, the „experienced“ and the „lived“ to a minimum. Disturbing attachments, which could divert of the essential point, has been omitted. Earthy and pastel shades are dominating his paintings, beside of the black color. Bodies are broken up by him. These elements, stripped down to their basic forms, will be recompiled for looking at them as an abstracting memory of appearances in nature. Even lines, apparently arranged, will be interrupted by energetically elements and color fields, which are resolving the harmony of these lines and at the same time bundle them up powerful. Elements, which are repeated often, are the lines which are going out of the frame, defining themselves as energy.
