'Waiting room'.


As we all know, paintings cannot be touched. In theory, paintings exist to be admired without intermediaries, without interference. You can reproduce them, you can make them smaller or larger, you can make postcards or notebooks, you can use them to make catalogues raisonnés with minimal black and white reproductions, or you can look at them on the screen. You can photograph them and share them, but you can't touch them. Never. If you touch them, it is by accident, because you could modify them, and in fact, paintings want to be immutable. Paintings are eternal. And even more so monochrome paintings, like the ones in this exhibition, which within the family of abstract paintings, are the serious ones, the elevated ones. Non-narrative, out of space-time, synthetic, pure transcendence.
