The initial procedure for this painting is the fragmentation of an over-painted museum shop merchandising of Vincent van Gogh's Sunflowers. The painting is built on contradictions that arise from the decontextualization of art into a commercial product (fridge magnet) and back again into a painting at a semantic and syntactic level. The over-painted artwork primarily performs and at the same time also anticipates its very own digital translation and mediatization, and thus is transformed into a representation of painting of a commercial product, which used to be high art.
