series of triptychs, 35 x 50 cm each, crayon on paper, framed, 2007 - ongoing
Since 2007 I have been working on a series of pieces which try to dismantle the distinction between text, graphics, visual art and media in a most simple but subtle form. One recurring thread within this body of works is the examination of our notions, conceptions and views of the sea.

Martin Breindl’s graphic cycle Die Sehnsucht nach dem Meer (konkrete Version) translates the “longing for the sea” into a literal “description” of identical motifs. An imaginary horizon line splits the superimposed words HIMMEL und MEER, or SKY and SEA, in two and reconstructs them. Step by step, Breindl lends concrete substance to the composition by applying the same method to different manifestations and a spectral perception of the motif, almost incidentally revealing it to be a mirror image.
