Although Fritz Pechmann's wall objects also rely on a highly reduced visual language, they differ significantly in their ultimate appearance from the works of Hellmut Bruch or the "picture bodies/Bildkörper" of Hans Brosch. His wall objects thrive on the contrast between individual geometric shapes, which he mills out of black-stained panels and assembles directly onto the white wall of the gallery, forming compositions rich in variation. He is fascinated by exploring the different possibilities of combining rectangles, squares, triangles, circles, and circular segments, as well as playing with closed and open forms. In his process of shaping forms, Pechmann not only calculates the symbolic value of the various shapes but also deliberately introduces moments of irritation. His individual connection to (East Asian) mandalas distinguishes his work from a purely mathematical-geometric statement and places it in the realm of the spiritual and meditative. - Günther Dankl from strictness and intuition Preface to the exhibition catalog of the exhibition at the Maerz Gallery Linz 1999

I am drawn to exploring the various combinations of squares, rectangles, triangles, circles, and circular segments, as well as assembling closed and open forms. In my form-finding process (Günther Dankl), I not only consider the symbolic value of different shapes but also deliberately incorporate moments of irritation.
