This process based way of working is strictly anti-hierarchical. The image montages are composed of a multiplicity of paintings that refer to a complex image archive, including art historical, religious as well as pop cultural signifiers. I deliberately try and subvert common hierarchies of genre, motif or style. Almost illusionistic paintings are juxtaposed in sharp contrast with abstract geometric compositions. This inherently fragmented structure of “In No Particular Order” not only refuses the validity of one single, established narration. It attempts to interrogate painting itself, fragmenting the very boundaries of its medium specificity, shifting focus from the auratic original painting towards the collectivity of images in an installation.
