Essay
On basis of successions and series, the artist illustrates the coexistence of similar principles. This also applies to this work, which calls reminiscence of the series "Rivoli" and "Fassaden" from the 198s and 90s. The monochrome surfaces and stripes that provide the basis for Förg's works are brought lo life through the clearly visible traces of the brush. Streaks, layers and omitted parts let the color vibrate and the painting process remains traceable at any time of observation. [JA].
