Sebastian Maas reflects on the question of the "classical" at the level of materiality, subject matter, and formal language. Instead of traditional canvas, Maas often works with his own color mixtures on loose truck tarpaulins, which he nobilizes, as it were, as an everyday object through the act of painting or the applied painting. In doing so, he deliberately draws on works by recognized masters that are significant in terms of material and motif history, which he transfers into a completely new formal language with a brushstroke characterized by spontaneity and lightness. The masterpiece, previously surrounded by the aura of the unapproachable, is thus transformed into an intimate, very personal art object that seems to shed its classicism in favor of an open dialogue with the viewer.
