Rainer Splitt

Articulated from questions such as What is an image? Is the surface a substance? Splitt’s work carries out a series of interventions where the idea of painting and process constitute its discursive axis. Regions of paint spilled on the floor flood a formal element like sculpture. This construction, made of colored panels, operates in a relationship with the pictorial pouring, highlighting qualities such as gravity, extension and resistance that oppose this “pouring” or spilled paint. The shiny surface of these pictorial accumulations plays on the misunderstanding of still appearing liquid and is related to the presence of the viewer. From an angle away from the piece, the material appears to dissolve into its surroundings like a reflective landscape trapped in an interior space.
