Fabian Treiber (1986) lives and works in Stuttgart.
Treibers practice of painting has its roots in a figurative tradition but is more precisely placed in an undefined zone between abstraction and figuration. Highly personal and technically refined, Treiber constantly seeks to expand the viewers possibilities for experiencing pictorial space.
While an array of fragments often appear in single paintings, Treibers main topic can be defined within the actual process of making and the dialogue between himself and his work. Starting from the first sketches his perceptions respond directly on the canvas. Multi-layered Treibers works becoming physical encounters, existing on the margins of the genre’s traditional definition.
