Cyanotype on canvas
140 x 105 cm | 55 x 41 1/3 in
Andreas Duscha applies his interpretation of works by Yves Klein as cyanotypes to canvas – International Klein Blue on Prussian blue, so to speak. They are subtle superimpositions; only the contours suggest the hommage to Yves Klein. With the choice of an extremely thin canvas instead of light-sensitive photographic paper, Andreas Duscha develops the medium a step further. It is an attempt, as Duscha says – and not without self-irony – to come as close to painting as possible. A reference to Yves Klein, then, but also a scrutiny of the mystification of an artistic personality.
