The paintings of Marco Reichert utilize the themes and motives from the vast and ever increasing image bank of the loud and fast consumer society. By redirecting these images into source material for paintings, Reichert obfuscates the original and intended meaning, content and context of mass media. We see a new image world in which the protagonists are caught in a new structure and texture; in fact, sometimes not just caught but indeed drowning.
The exhibition opens tonight in Berlin and runs through April 23, 2011.
