Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
This oil painted postcard exemplifies Jochen Mühlenbrink's approach to contemporary painting in a small format. It challenges our perception of reality and questions the way we experience the world: What is the truth and what is an illusion? What is genuine and what is fake?
With all the symbolism of the adhesive strip: of the healing power of the plaster and the strength to hold and protect broken pieces or even to bind them together again, the artist is referring to present-day political events.
"Paint the Tape-Tape the Pain" TP, 2022 was made especially for the "Art on A Postcard" project.
