One rectangle goes one way and the other goes the other.
The stripe's saying, "Whaddya want from me?"

Reinhart makes paintings and conceptual artworks. By emphasising aesthetics, Reinhart creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles.

His paintings sometimes radiate a cold and latent violence. At times, disconcerting beauty emerges. The inherent visual seductiveness, along with the conciseness of the exhibitions, further complicates the reception of their manifold layers of meaning. By applying abstraction, he makes work that generates diverse meanings. Associations and meanings collide. Space becomes time and language becomes image.

His works doesn't reference recognisable form. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. By studying sign processes, signification and communication, he seduces the viewer into a world of ongoing equilibrium and the interval that articulates the stream of daily events. Moments are depicted that only exist to punctuate the human drama in order to clarify our existence and to find poetic meaning in everyday life.

His works question the conditions of appearance of an image in the context of contemporary visual culture in which images, representations and ideas normally function.

DamnYankees: EvilEgg: Well, I could now.

So do it. If you have the ability to do something which would get you tens of millions of dollars, do it, or stop complaining.


I'm better at complaining, much more practice.  I don't think I could sell my complaining for $44Mil.

DamnYankees: It's art. No one's making you look at it or pay money for it. Why does this bother anyone?


Because I could have done it and been a cool $44Mil richer now.

Dragonflew: wjllope: To witness this painting is to submit one's self to a spiritual experience, which, through its transcendence of subject matter, approximates that of consciousness itself. It forces one to approach the limits of experience and awakens one to the awareness of one's own existence.

Nice!  I saw this on the wall of an art gallery.  How would you interpret this one?

An obvious attempt to break away from the burden of 1960s 'pure' formalism (art as an end in itself), Light Switch allowed Snyder to coalesce abstraction and content into a self-proclaimed investigation of globalism and identity. If the tension between the rigid virtuosity of architecture and the vibrant spontaneity of electrical current control devices constituted a possibly pertinent metaphor for the lively dissymmetry of powers between governments and people, the actual urban references were nevertheless, and to say the least, often a bit subsidiary, a pretext for opening Snyder's truly abstract aesthetics onto a circumstantial political awareness or a level of significance beyond old-fashioned Modernism.

No, you couldn't have. You know how I know you couldn't? Because you didn't.


Well, I could now.
