Spending 98% of your life in the house, the office, shopping malls and the car makes you wonder how real the place you live in really is. (You wonder about the other 2%? That is when you walk to or from your car.) Thinking about that, two (or rather three) artists came to my mind. The first is Gerhard Richter, who I admire, adore and love. The other is an artist team, Tim Noble and Sue Webster, whose art is only a shadow – made from trash.

Photo? Painting? Painting based on a photo. The result: a totally different reality. (By Gerhard Richter.)

Trash? No. Art! By Tim Noble and Sue Webster.)


  1. Oh, the second picture reminds me of Egon Schiele’s sketches for some reason. 😉

  2. Love the ‘rubbish’ shadow sculptures, very clever
    and I agree with Deneuve, there is a Schiele feel about the paintings. xx
