Ingo Meller is concerned with basic elements of painting: canvas, color and paint.
The shape of his canvases is based on the course of its woven threads, which are glued directly onto the gallery walls, and therefore become on-wall paintings. The color of the raw canvas and the lack of a traditional frame emphasize the flatness of the picture and let the painting appear particularly plastic and material.

The different types of oil paint are ready-to-use products from various manufacturers, which have been selected for each particular image, and are used in an unmixed way. Usually three or four different tones are combined. Their composition is determined before the actual work on the painting begins. Here, each color is applied in more than one relation: The color of the canvas relates to the colors of the paint and to the mesh resulting from the various brushstrokes. The painter rapidly executes the brush-strokes, which are set vertically or horizontally on the canvas. The color setting is an unrepeatable result of the moment, which cannot be improved or removed. Gestures, calculation and experience are specifically unidentifiable.

In his work, Ingo Meller invites us to bear two things: The unfinished and the perfect. The works appear unfinished, as there is no final painted layer but just the rough surface of the canvas and the coarse paint. At the same time, they are perfect, as they are perceived in the eyes of the viewer as a whole, as an image. He can revel in it, but it is nothing more than canvas, paint, and paint application, to which the viewer is thrown back again.
