PROVENANCE: From the artist' studio.

"As nano-scientist and artist Wolfgang M. Heckl crosses borders between science & art, as his painting is based on molecular processes of self-organization. He calls this new style Moleculism. [..] Science begins where natural perception ends. Heckl understands to take the world of forms that we explore through means of technical perception, to spheres of natural perception through painting. His molecular compositions create new dialectics beyond abstraction and figuration."
Prof. Dr. h.c. mult. Peter Weibel, directoe, chairman and CEO of ZKM (Zentrum für Kunst und Medien in Karlsruhe)
