The Surface of Experience - staring Boo Bakker

Boo Ritson, The Air Hostess & Conrad Bakker, Commodity [Capital]

Paint becomes print and print becomes paint (the surface conceals and reveals). I have always experienced that the actuality of things is never how you expect them to be, whether this is a disappointment or a pleasant surprise the acknowledgement of the 'experience' is worth remembering. The inclusion of this occurrence within an artwork seems particularly poignant when print is used to disturb the surface - after all our original experience of artworks are often through its printed reproduction.
