Rudolf Stingel questions the role of the artist’s hand in the creative process. With an ironic and cryptic attitude, he pushes the limits of painting, disrupting the viewer’s understanding and experience of an art object. His radical pictures contain references to the technique of painting, glorifying and at the same time parodying the artist’s own creative process—yet they still succeed in conveying an incredible sense of beauty.
