DISTRACTING SURFACE

The “distracted” surface is deflected and shifted, and the “sign” that defines it is neither solely nor exclusively what is produced by the artist. It also refers to what, through chance actions, influences the final outcome through a variety of different events and situations. The investigation thus focuses on an analysis of the painting surface and, by extension, of all other possible surfaces, as places of appearance or “screens” onto which images are projected (…)
