Natural Rothko
2014

This is photographs of graffiti that has been painted over. The paint used to remove it does not match the original background. The attempt to paint over the unwanted graffiti ends up creating a new visual expression of its own. More subtle and quiet than actual tags but still expressive in its own right. Some of the photos are details others show the total of the walls. There is also some kind of involuntary relationship to expressionist abstract painting. Especially Mark Rothko springs to mind and the work of Sergej Jensen.
