Adrian Ghenie

I really love this Romanian artist, Adrian Ghenie… his works are really dark, brooding and fascinating for me.  I’m also interested in how he appropriates imagery from Google, Youtube and television to create his paintings.  Laurence Sillars in Vitamin p2 describes his work as having “tension between paint as paint and paint as an illusion of something”.  His work “reminds us to consider ‘painting’ as both an object and an act”. (Phaidon, p108)
