Stefan Kübler

"Through his collages and paintings, Stefan Kübler, 1968, demonstrates in an aesthetic that uses the deconstruction of the motif, how the image can distance the viewer and seduce him at the same time. His work is a challenge to the production of the work by playing with the conditions of information access and the different modes of cognition.

Kübler paints widely and finely in acrylic on a glass plate by superimposing many layers of paint. He takes off the dry paint layer and mounts it on a canvas, reversing the direction of reading. By literally inverting the paint layer, he plays with the mode of classical perception of the work. He surprises his own eyes by condemning the chimeric gate to the original subjectivity, the primitive image, the creative eye." - (see more at) Hamish Morrison Galerie.
