The basis of the artwork is an over-painted auction advertisement of Andy Warhol's »Flowers«. The over-painted printed matter has been digitalized and reworked on the computer. Parts of it have been printed out as pigmented inkjet prints (collage) and mounted on canvas with a transparent medium UV protection. The over-painting serves as an under-painting that loops behind expressionist brushwork. Unlike on the computer, where the functional logic is based on described rules, the material on canvas becomes the topic as a sequence of actions—taking on an almost sculptural character. The result is a multilayered composition in which figure and ground seem to continually shift between the analog painting, and its digital counterpart.
