Good as Gold

Artist: Rudolf Stingel | Galvanized cast copper, 2012

I am a fan of incorporating language into art. Rudolf Stingel has always explored the nature of memory and the passage of time.

His latest golden canvases bare the traces of time through the expansion of vocabulary.

Like etchings on a cave wall of historical importance, his latest pieces (in my opinion) invoke a primitive story telling; hidden in its layers one may find a ceremonial purpose amongst the abstract content and language. It beckons us to take a closer look at ourselves.

I am curious. Aren't you? -tM
