Manfred Dörner

Manfred Dörner was born in Wiesbaden. His early works mostly consisted of steel sculptures, which he created using welding techniques. Nowadays he uses his own technique of compiling multiple image plates to create a single, larger rectangular painting, that he developed during his time in Berlin in the 1980s. At the heart of his conceptual work is his aim to create new artistic effects through such combinations: it is not the individual work in itself, as a fixed and static entity, that interests him, but rather the potential for transformations and possibilities that are inherent to pictorial structures.
