Volker Blumkowski's paintings illustrate peripheral, seemingly insignificant everyday events that contain an unreal, alienating, enigmatic attitude. The pictorial creations are based on memories, photographs and drawings that the artist collects mostly on his extensive walks. He freezes an action and offers constructive constellations with his photo-realistic (staged) compositions, which have a special individual color tone inherent in them. His stage and action spaces motivate to fill them with their own protagonists and stories. In their peculiar presence, his protagonists are reminiscent of actors, the places of action of stages. Thus, his small-format work "Da schau an!", created in 2010, also seems like a scenic arrangement in which the artist finds himself in the midst of colorful ribbons that cross the pictorial space in an irritating way - as a painted fiction of an abstract concrete and a real representational reality. The play with logically possible and the irrational seeming phenomena belongs to the characteristic of the painter.
