Star Work № 16: Statement 34/56

Jean-Marie Biwer

The 56-part cycle Statements from 2000, to which the work 34/56 belongs, consists of impulsively executed, same-sized paintings. They present fresh pictorial structures between collaged particles from the world of things and a gestural handling of line. These are up-to-date singularities that do not play with expectations but depict felt reality in fragments and remembered remains of days.

What we have in front of us is not what has meanwhile become a customary flood of images in a collage of clippings, but instead a picture of the process of digesting both one’s own experience of the world and that conveyed by the media.

(Dirk Tölke, revised version)
