In Matthias Ludwigs paintings we meet figures that only appear to act with each other and act strangely isolated. The compositional cohesion of the figures within the narrow pictorial space is repealed by gesture and mimic, their presence is difficult to understand, present a puzzling aspect. Ludwig tells stories that lead nowhere. „Puppenhaft sind diese Figuren, sinnlos-neckisch ihre Gesten und unzeitgemäß ihr Habitus. Sie sitzen auf der Schwelle, selbstbewusst im Besitz ihrer angestaubten Schönheit, und zeigen sich und uns ihre entleerten Formeln.“ („Doll like are these figures, absurd teasing their gestures and old fashioned their habit. They sit on the doorstep, confident in possession of their dusty beauty, and show their hollow formulas to us and themselves.“ Tina Schulz, galerie leuenroth)
