During its last spring retrospective dedicated to the Urban Design most innovative artists, ADDICT Gallery presented Markus Butkereit’s work, " TRYONE ", a German painter born in 1976, who is living in Berlin.
With energy and a speed of singular execution, the artist let arise from the deepest of himself a spontaneous pictorial language such as Minotaur who did not seem painted but written on his paintings. Markus Butkereit's approch is that of a child who does not judge the world but tries to re-transcribe it in a raugh way without the re-creation filter, i.e. the reinterpretation.

In this first personal exhibition, Markus Butkereit makes its artist's writing by imagining what he names beyond any traditional calligraphy's codes. This time, he is inspired by the neurosis of "Dr Mabuse", hero Fritz Lang's movie of 1922. In his psychiatric cage the famous criminal rashes in space an illegible message. In reality, he reproduces under the dictation of his unconscious, his hallucinated vision of murder before putting on paper his visions in a kind of an evil automatic writing.

Markus Butkereit
does not paint a murderer portrait but seeks, signals that he sends, to unscramble the human being dark face, his taste for the sufferance and death of the other. For that, he just has to let go his drives. His approach, freed  from any preconceived intention, lets the unconscious express itself in a spontaneous way. Images are then born which overlap in brilliant setfeelings to their contained or amputated in their expression.

Fragments of words, forms in tatters torn from the night, ghostly and threatening sketches overlap such strata which, in dazzling burst coming from the depths of the being, reveal one by one the geology of unconscious. Then occurs a reading by fission of this compact and mysterious nucleus  which constitutes the essence of man. From there, the surprising energy, truly nuclear, which gets free of the work

Signs, forms, explosions of images, such asteroids floating in a univers never investigated, are suspended in an opened space thanks to the destruction of the traditional language codes.

Markus Butkereit
remains the painter of the creative disintegration.

On the occasion of this first personal exhibition in Paris, the ADDICT Gallery is proud to present the work of an author so singular.
