Untitled (Monochromes Bild)
2007
oil on canvas
260 x 320 cm
Three other Untitled works (all 2007), which also combine abstraction with figuration, explore similar ideas but through a much more restrained almost greyscale palette. Their pared-down unfilled faux naïve geometric shapes recall surrealist compositions and Cy Twombly’s accumulated mark-making. Equally romantic and nihilistic, the artist has described these works as ‘the kind of things Donald Duck would do when he paints’.
