Zimmer Nr.1

Disappearance

 

This Zimmer deals with the relationship between the transient nature of the canvasses on display and the temporality of the viewers own being. In this series I used wallpaper patterns as imaginary projection surfaces. By moving through the space, the shadow of the spectator becomes an integral part of the paintings. I amplified this human presence again by blending these wallpaper patterns with traces from another portrait series. A painterly presence which over time will slowly decompose through the solvents used in the painting.
