Meditations in an Emergency

€16.36 (excl. VAT)

It is a well-worn cliché that painting, in the age of the digital image, finds itself in a difficult, not to say precarious, position. Caught in its apparent inability to find its own voice in the age when images have become a language in their own right, devoid of anything but the most facile attempts of interpretation (c.f.: Snapchat filters), painting struggles to articulate its sense of purpose beyond decoration. It is precisely at this juncture that Henning Strassburger’s recent works, shown in the exhibition »Meditations in an Emergency« find themselves.
