Painting has been transformed into a makeshift scenery as an attempt at dealing with the loss of an approach based on the subjectís stabile relation to form and space, namely modernity. Apparently originating from a mourning modernist, the work deals with questions of authenticity, depth and authorship. Although evidently critical to its own approach, the work still contains certain poetic and aesthetic intentions beyond the apparent, residing between the lines.
