Art Description

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

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

The painting began as an overpainting of a museum poster »The Hermitage at the Prado Madrid«, which was then subsequently scanned, digitally manipulated and reworked, printed out and then further altered with top layers of paint and collage on canvas. The smudged passages of oil paint atop fragments of prints defacing parts of the canvas become something like the ground of the composition. It is the idea of bringing painting and printing together, which are and aren’t continuous with one another—always painting out certain areas, and then reprinting them, the process becomes both additive and reductive.
