Manfred Körner's works, carried out with meticulosity and precision, offer to the observer an opportunity to move into the painted world of non-existing spaces, remain there, and reveal the secrets of his symbols and metaphors.
He uses a supernatural language of signs, which is essentially different from the world as it is shown to us daily by rational sciences. Through objectifying isolation of things, the withdrawal of all atmospherics, an irrational element creeps into his works.
