workshop and acrylic on canvas
Action-painting workshop given for the exhibition For Real! at the Kunsthalle St. Gallen, with the other participating artists: San Keller, Norma Jeane, Fouad Bouchoucha and myself.
For Real! looks for a relationship with the reality of art, which is seen symbolically most of the time. The principle upon which I built my project is that what makes reality is the involvement that one puts into it. So I tried to involve the artists in a process which is not their medium at all, painting, in the action-painting style which requires no special skills to begin with, and which at the same time is a direct/real relationship with the paint, the canvas and the brushes.
