Timotheus Tomicek has an extraordinarily light approach to photography. Both the scope of his motifs – literally the whole world in details, every genre of portrait via landscape to still life, art-historical references included – as well as the variety of formal realisations, from very small to very big, from the loose sheet to luscious, golden-framed panel painting – all relating to one another in a finely balanced system of references – show a virtuoso player with the possibilities of the medium.

He photographs a cloud or a potato, which then for the time being show themselves as cloud or potato very unpretentiously and matter-of-factly in his pictures. Thus, the photograph appears as a medium containing the world, but likewise also as cosmos of pictures in which the individual new ones cannot be thought of without the history of the others. Tomicek finds his motifs, often quite by chance, and mounts them in the picture as if elaborately staged. Despite all the ambiguity he develops his own iconography addressing the viewer also through the title, integrating him. Thus he makes the viewer anticipate levels and stories behind the surface of the pictures.
