Bertold Mathes (*1957, Freiburg i. Br.) studied from 1979 until 1985 at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Karlsruhe/Freiburg. In his fascinating approach, Mathes investigates the limitations of abstract painting and researches the enigmatic potential of abstract images. Since the 1980s, the artist has been moving like a border crosser between the systematic creation of images and visually imaginative representativeness, between geometric shapes and amorphous structures.
