Recouvrements

Recouvrements

The set of works from the mid-70s presented in the Salon belong to this family of Übermalungen. They are photographs, mounted on wood or aluminium, which have been covered in black paint by the artist: it is almost impossible to see anything of the underlying image. The new form sometimes inspires a title: Skull, Fruit, Heap, Panel, Apron…or Rainer lets the viewer come up with their own. These small black paintings are charged with an intense dramatic and emotional potential which evokes a sort of expressionist minimalism, the slogan of which could be “less is more”.
