Under Pressure Sounds
By Thorsten Raab
A digital exhibition presented by
The theory of language says that everything what we see, everything what we hear, we also can think. But some ideas are unthinkable. And some phenomenons are only feelings. And those feeling then are our access to the reality. Like in the Japanese phenomenology, where no words are necessary in order to realise the world around us. Ludwig Wittgenstein described it with mysticism. But since Whorf we know, that even some thoughts are unspeakable. We cannot say them. But we also don’t need to do it.
When I see pictures from Thorsten, I do not think. I only feel them. And sometimes, when I feel those pictures, I can hear the music.
Thorsten is a young painter from Hamburg, Germany. He says, he is inspired by black music while painting. Music from the 80s and Jazz. But his pictures are like the idea of Mu. They give us space. The ability to listen different music while watching. Or to hear nothing. No one word. Only feelings.
We are proud to can present his pictures on our site.

Great work. Well done.
I’m may be not understanding these pictures of Raab. They are strange – in a way. But I love them.
Thanks for getting views this morning into a world of colours and signs. A technical question is about the sizes of the original works (just from … to…) Are they made with gouache?
