Albert Oehlen
Titankatze Mit Versuchstier (Titanium Cat With Laboratory Tested Animal)
1999
Oil on canvas
209 x 300 cm
Titanium Cat… reads like a page torn from a 1950’s exhibition catalogue: an exaggeratedly expressionistic painting entirely stripped of colour. Rendered defunct from the start, Albert Oehlen revels in its self-styled retardation. A decoded script of interrupted image and muted texture, takes its pleasure in contrast and surface.
