Art Description

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

Acrylic, acrylic based medium, archival varnish UV protection, oil, and pigmented Ultrachrome inkjet prints (collage) on canvas.

The basis of the artwork is an overpainted advertisement of Andy Warhol's »Flowers«. The overpainted printed matter has 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 overpainting serves as an underpainting 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.

4 panels, each 200 x 80 cm will be shipped in one crate with the dimension 207 x 90 x 40 cm. The crate needs a week to be build.
