Star Work № 15: Texte zur Kunst

Horst Keining

Shiny, bright points of blue and white reminiscent of confetti stand out vividly against the orange-yellow background. Something substantial can be intuited: a landscape, a piece of architecture, stacked boxes. As when viewing a Pointilist painting, it is only with increasing distance that the juxtaposed colours become a comprehensible whole – even as the picture itself remains fragmentary. The words “Texts on Art”, applied in sans-serif capital letters, suggest the supposed pictorial statement. But the viewer, who is essentially a reader, has expectations that are not fulfilled by the pictorial motif.

(Denise Essig, revised version)
