In Reuter's work "KIRR 6/3/10 - Remembrance of C.D.F." from 2006, ultramarine spatial bodies or surfaces float meteorite-like, image-parallel in front of a white, illuminated, unspecified, seemingly infinite pictorial space. By adding the title "Remembrance of C.D.F." Reuter, since his early work also committed to the old masters, dedicates his pictorial invention to one of the most important German romantics of the 19th century. Thus, in addition to Reuter's homage to Caspar David Friedrich, it is also a reminder of the latter's melancholy work "Eismeer" (Sea of Ice), which thematizes the ultimate failure of all hopes. The absence of any organic quality leaves only the dimensions of space, time and light. Reuter's dominant pictorial device is the color blue, while light and space are his central themes. Tiled walls, for example, can constitute space with the help of trompe l'oeil effects of central perspective. Beyond the amazingly pretending, partly irritating effect, his paintings are characterized by an aesthetic order based on the blue color. Between construction, hyperrealism and op(tical)-art, Reuter attempts to materialize phenomena such as light, space and structure as aesthetic form.
