Über das Werk

In the early 1960s Thieler revealed his innermost convictions in a precisely formulated statement which shed light on his own understanding of his oeuvre and his artistic trajectory, and which illustrated vividly how consciously his work is rooted in the societal and political context of its time: "For me being a painter", explained Thieler, "means leading the existence of a modern observer who spends the majority of his life endeavouring to highlight on canvas the impulses of his life: depression, intuition, calculated thought, reactions to individual experiences and to chains of events - or to arouse these in the act of painting. Painting to me means registering the analogies to, and differences in, our experiences and creating something which, liberated from the painting process, represents and provides a reflection of human experience to both the viewer and the painter himself. Thus in my view 'painting' appears to be a process which in essence is an act of exploration - exploration as a corollary of open analysis." (quoted from: Rothe, Wolfgang (ed.): Wegzeichen im Unbekannten. Neunzehn deutsche Maler zu Fragen der zeitgenössischen Kunst, Heidelberg 1962, 40-43, here: 40-42).
This mission statement informed Thieler's output into the final years of artistic activity, and this present work also attests to his "exploratory" treatment of colour which affords scope to the element of chance and liberates the material.
