My pictures show spaces. You can see them but you can't get to them; writes Berlin-based painter Thomas Huber, describing the effect of the luminous abstract gouaches and watercolors surveyed here: "it is as if they are sealed behind clear glass... Everything comes to a head below the surface; I see the pictures as sad diamonds."

Thomas Huber questions the possibility of a real encounter between the viewer and an artwork. Here, Huber's own philosophic and poetic texts are illustrated with a selection of 52 of his geometric abstractions, an ironic nod to Modernism, which interweave shapes such as diamonds and squares to depict interior spaces.
