DAVID HOMINAL «Sans titre», 2010

hominal

The composition of the serigraphy – colour blocs around a cross – relates to a certain tradition of geometric abstraction and notably Swiss concrete art. If “nothing is more concrete than a line, a colour, a surface” (Theo van Doesburg, 1930), the literal quality in question differs from that of abstract painting. The pattern reproduced originates from a wide spread industrial technique. It is a cromalin print, a high definition colour reproduction used as a validation for documents during the printing that can be find in packaging and notably on cigarette packets.

Produced by the artist in the printing studio of the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam with precise colour mixes (oil painting), the print has a tautological character yet claims its hand-crafted quality.

The rippling and fingerprints related to the manipulation of the different blocs of colour are fully assumed by the artist.
