Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Digital, Ink, Oil, Spray Paint on Canvas.

Acrylic, acrylic based medium, archival varnish UV protection, oil, and pigmented Ultrachrome inkjet prints (collage) on canvas. The piece comes ready to hang.

A museum shop merchandising of Vincent van Gogh's Sunflowers has been used as a readymade on which the act of painting took place. The over-painted printed matter has then been digitalized and reworked on the computer. Parts of it have been printed out as pigmented inkjet prints (collage) and mounted on canvas with a transparent medium UV protection. The over-painting serves as an under-painting that loops behind expressionist brushwork. Unlike on the computer, where the functional logic is based on described rules, the material on canvas becomes the topic as a sequence of actions—taking on an almost sculptural character. The result is a multilayered composition in which figure and ground seem to continually shift between the analog painting, and its digital counterpart.
