About this product
- DescriptionGerman painter Susanne Paesler (19632006) was among a generation of artists in the 1990s who distanced themselves from the modernist concept of the image as a place of ever new and competing aesthetics. Distrustful of the tion of authenticity and uniqueness, Paesler examined the meaning of artwork itself within her conceptual paintings produced during her short but powerful career. Forty formal geometric paintings, made over a 15-year period, are gathered for the first time in this well-designed publication accompanying her solo exhibition at Kunstmuseum Bonn. Paeslers paintings are sometimes reminiscent of cheap woolen blankets, Burlington socks or Burberry coats everyday objects that served her as motive and model for her work. But instead of following the principle of the readymade and mounting fabric directly onto stretchers, the artist manually copied the patterns so that painting, handcraft and design became a fluent conceptual exchange. Bringing insight into Paeslers unique career is a provocative conversation between curator Christian Schreier and gender studies professor Hanne Loreck.
