About his work
Painter of sharp-edged abstractions, digital images and large fiberboard environments and parcel-like sculptures, Olaf Holzapfel makes works that might be formal evocations of Gilles Deleuze’s folds and “deterritorializations”; their appeal lies as much in their abstraction of cerebral processes as in their material facture (bron: Olaf Holzapfel: Das Nomadische Kriterium)
