Descrizione Opera / Biografia

”Super Abstraction is simple, playful and bold. My work is partly generated ~ partly composed.”
After more than 10 years of artistic activity, a key moment occurs for Marcel Moonen in 2018. Soon after he founded ”Super Abstraction”. Within the framework of this novel style of exaggerated abstraction, an extensive body of work is created. In the visual works, in principle, motifs are reduced to their smallest pictorial units through an artistic process, and then re-presented in different variations and compositions. In this playful process, the artist also likes to put the original motif into a new context or vice versa.
In addition to the artist’s visual oeuvre, he produces essays and books. The artist also adapts the principle of ”Super Abstraction” in his writing. Almost cryptographic texts, which despite their complexity ultimately convey very simple messages to the individual reader. Furthermore, Moonen’s literary work provides fundamental theories on his work as well as on holistic aspects of art.
B Some-One II (2022)
The charm of what we create,
Lies not in the act of creation itself,
But in the gaze that we bring to it.
Though machines may assist in the task,
Their eyes remain blind to the intricacies,
The unique qualities that make a creation our own.
The future may promise that AI can forge what we will,
But it lacks the spark, the unpredictability,
That sets human art apart.
It is through our connection to the world,
Our capacity to recognize the magic in the mundane,
That we bring the extraordinary into being.
A composer may delve into the archives of sound,
Listening to thousands of songs,
In search of a single moment,
A beat, a chord, a phrase,
To make their own.
And so, I too,
may run a program,
To have images dance before me,
An endless constant flow,
And in it, I may find,
The fleeting moment that catches my eye,
And make it mine.
