Muntean & Rosenblum

Untitled

2002
acrylic on canvas

200 x 250cm

Placing themselves in Renaissance tradition, Muntean & Rosenblum make cartoons of their major works. Shunning silver-point and charcoal for pencil and acrylic, Muntean & Rosenblum’s end results show the subtle changes of character and the rationalising of composition, the first drafts of a masterpiece. In Muntean & Rosenblum’s finished works, the texts are presented as self-authored philosophy. Here, the skeleton of their composition is shown: worthy phrases and lines stolen from novels and magazine articles at random are pasted together like a poetic ransom note.
