Spray paintings

In the 90s while working on his sihouettes Niemöller also experimented with the artistic possibilities of spraying. The materials he used were black spray paint on a ground of white fabric, packing paper or drawing paper.

The chief technique he employed was manipulating the base material before spraying. Deliberate creasing, folding, covering with foreign substances etc. prepared for the result on the level surface but was never entirely predictable. Hence calculated randomness plays a significant role in the final artwork.

The spray paintings achieve their effect by hinting at the play of light and shadow, which inspires the powers of association.
