Variations on a Weltanschauung

1993 - 1994oil on canvas / silk screen print on hand made paper / painting on ceiling

Paintings of six different projections of equal area world maps, orientated / centred towards the south pole and/or the pacific ocean, challenge the ways we see world maps as well as concrete art. Unusual views of the world question and confuse – in an aesthetic way – our habits of perception and our belief in detached information.
