The monochrome painting is a cornerstone of 20th century modern art. My fascination with it stems from its fundamental character: one colour on canvas; that’s all. It brought me large quantities of somewhat sloppy pieces of linen in various rather illogical sizes. A painting unworthy.
The choice not to show these works individually opened up new imaginary spaces. Arrangement in series and stacks; and finally just the backside of the canvasses in sight. These monochromes, once the paragon of pure abstraction, transformed into works with sometimes a surprising relation to reality.
