Untitled

2002
Oil on Canvas

102 x 120cm

In Matthias Weischer’s Untitled, the artist constructs a claustrophobic room with fraudulent perspective. The airy turquoise space is squashed between the heavy mauve planes of ceiling and floor; only a too-tall standing lamp keeps them prised apart. The precariousness of the scene is repeated throughout: a dwarfed table teeters on matchstick legs under the weight of a classical urn and striped sticks appear to stand on end, placed at deceptive angles to the ground. Matthias Weischer emphasises the ‘askance’ effect through the patterning of the carpets, tablecloth and wall hanging, each appearing out of turn in their layered spatial order.
