Arnulf Rainer - Arch

February 15, 2023

From 1961 Arnulf Rainer begins to overdraw figures. The underlying becomes a prerequisite for the form of the overlay, the arc. An intense relationship to the concealed original develops. The edges are fringed and moved. What lies underneath stimulates him. He continues the given. Reworking occurs, giving the overlay a rhythm that is consistent with the overlayed object, but can also break away from it and grow out of control.
