MATTHIAS GROEBEL "VANISHING POINTS"
UNIVERSAL CONCEPTS UNLIMITED
Vanishing Points will feature digitally
produced paintings that incorporate images and text from a variety
of sources: TV, video tapes, and Asian video CDs. Groebel
manipulates the sampled television images, addressing the general
cultural memory inherent in this images. By synthesizing traditional
painting with computer printing techniques, Groebel constructs the
machines that manufacture the paintings, he combines the elements
associated with painting and reconfigures the working process,
making it clear that the vanishing point of his artistic practice
lays outside the canvas. Groebelís interest in paintings is not
about painting, however, instead he uses the vocabulary of painting
as a means to depict how perception is altered.
Matthias Groebel is a German artist living and
working in Cologne; this is first solo exhibition in New
