The artistic development of Christoph M. Gais proves to be a continuous process in the examination of color, to which he develops a strong emotional relationship. The other important means of design is hidden behind the painterly application of color. The path leads logically from initially gestural to freely moving lineatures more and more to ornaments and certain compositions characterized by simple, elementary forms. The painterly process is a long-lasting examination of the pictorial object. Often older picture supports serve as the basis for new pictorial ideas. Thus Gais condenses in the painting process his intention of the conversion of spatial effect of the color on the surface of the panel painting. Comparable to music, he develops an emotional relationship to the picture object, which leaves the viewer his own free space to develop his imagination. With this artistic approach, the painter stands in contrast to the analytically calculating calculations of many concrete artists: instead of symmetry, he consciously tends towards asymmetry; disturbances of the ornamental orders are deliberately intended. His special painterly aids also include stamps and stencils. They give special impulses to the material and color components and betray a certain playful approach, which often also refers with a wink to artifacts of our or other cultures. In this way, Gais does justice to his artistic intention of not appearing dogmatic and calculating. For the artist, the work is finished when complex conclusiveness dominates over subjective feeling.
