FMP's inaugural Featured Cover Artist, German artist Holger Lippmann, has been featured in numerous exhibitions. Born in 1960, he studied painting and sculpting in Dresden and Stuttgart, before moving on to develop his own computer drawing software. Lippmann’s images range from representational subjects like flowers to geometric figures to superimposed matrix structures. Although essentially abstract, Lippmann’s work is always connected to the concrete.
Lippmann developed the computer drawing programs for his own work. With them, he composes delicate structures and abstract geometrical patterns he can layer and vary. The LUMAS pieces are based on a special program, in which the artist set a range of parameters to regulate the scattering of the geometrical elements. Lippmann then unites different compositions made in this way into cohesive pieces. “My internal process is the same as it was when I was working with paint and canvas,” Lippmann explains. “That’s why I call my current work digital or computer-aided painting.”
"Like music, my work is born of improvisation."
