More details

The exhibition Fliegen ohne Flügel ('Flying without Wings’) features a series of wall works exploring the reverse process of mark-making. The works refer to certain traditions in painting such as portraiture, still life and landscape.

The artist has created trompe-l’oeil cast objects made of a single block of polymer compound. With their form moulded from the back of a stretched canvas, the process is essentially the reverse to that of a painting. The foreground is applied first before the artist painstakingly works his way toward the background of the image.
