Different parameters, linked to each other in an innovative way, characterize Oliver Dorfer’s new works: in the creative process he combines traditional and current techniques and, when building up his individual set of motifs, concentrates on combining disparate elements deriving from the most diverse of sources into one plausible composition. Assisted by a computer, he arranges the image layout his work is built upon, based on hand sketches and with additional image matter that comes from his archive or which he has found on the Internet or while studying various print media. In this way, Dorfer constructs narrative artworks, engineered between aggression and melancholy, latent threat and irony, whose details, disintegrating, melting into one another or rigorously separated, all claim attention individually.
