Vesch / ein Abend von Ludwig Kittinger

As a starting point, a Simulacrum, according to Baudrillard, is the mimicry of something which had no reality to begin with. The grid pattern, a neutral space exploited throughout the history of culture, has been reduced onto a surface nominally understood as painting.

Even with the removal of historical and cultural references, the paintings shown maintain a reference to themselves, a blank slate for cultural diversity.
