  • Catalogue Essay

    "The Corner Splat paintings ironically imitate Formica, an artificial, stale product of industry whose name has become part of American mass-culture vernacular. Suggesting material as well as perspective in a "fake" way, the Corner Splats stand in the tradition of trompe l'oeil paintings. Hybrids of painting, sculpture and furniture, they confuse our concept of the objects surrounding us and carve out real and imaginary spaces which are exceptions to the hegemonic rationality of everyday life in the West."

    - Jorg Schellmann, ed., Forty Are Better Than One, Munich/New York, 2009, p. 13
