Minimalism strives for objectivity, schematic clarity, logic and depersonalisation. Karl Hikade's artistic practice is based on the concepts of Minimal Art, which he studied early on. Since the 1990s, his main artistic work has been concerned with the relationship of the painting to its space. The painting thus continues its spatial environment in an abstracted way, differently, and at the same time breaks through it. In Hikade's work, the painting surface does not remain a medium in itself, but breaks out of its two-dimensionality.
