Mailed Paintings

since 2004

Mailed Paintings - Without prior manipulation the primed canvases are mailed unwrapped to various exhibitions. Along the way their unprotected surfaces are covered by marks that visually transcribe the distance they traveled. The Mailed Paintings absorb the partina of their postal route. The monochromatic white surfaces act as self-writing diaries that record the journey of the work. The collected patina exaggerates and mirrors the effect of the passage of time on the surface of the painting and emphasis on the environment of the exhibition and the circumstances surrounding it. Thereby the artwork is constantly in the mode of being exhibited.
