Anselm Reyle for Mekanism

Anselm Reyle applied several thin layers of spray painted neon pink and added two different  coloured paints before the boards were covered with a two-component lacquer, giving a shiny surface.Glossy and matt,flashy and dark.
Beyond the contradiction of colours and textures, the artist is contrasting our prospect of neon pink as a colour used for posters of the punk and the psychedelic scene in the 70s and 80s with the mudstone colours applied in post war gestural abstract paintings, notably in Abstract Expressionism.
