OFF THE PAINTING #2 Painting I Analysis and Convergence, with Paolo Chiasera. A series compiled by Tanja Schomaker. / by Alexander Hahn

The work is the permanent luminous form of itself. But what happens to the world that produced it? Can we talk of the living world (Lebenswelt) of which the pictorial work is an outcome? The experience of the artist as the trace of thought makes the work a sign of his or her action. Whether or not he is aware of this legacy, the artist becomes dispersed in the painting and in its phenomenological cognitive experience, which – as possibly in no other discipline – becomes a fundamental experience.
