Artwork description:

64x84 cm | Filler, oak frame

This work was created by moving filler by hand from a ready prepared frame, to an empty one. In the blank frame, it was then distributed with a wooden scraper (according to my Spread technique). The two works #287 This and #288 That thus have a joint production history, where the amount of white filler in one piece corresponds to the amount of grey in the other. They can be exhibited/purchased individually or as a diptych.

Within a capitalist production logic, the owner's profits are always in contrast to the efforts of the employees. To increase profits, workers must work harder or receive a lower wage. Although increased profits can also result from raised prices or different sort of savings, employees are nevertheless the ones who have to bear the burden for this, as consumers in a market with rising costs or because the savings affect them as a group elsewhere in the production chain. The death of one is always the bread of the other.

The material world is ruled by strict causality. Nothing can happen without a preceding cause. Matter gravitates to an ever-increasing entropy. However, the organisms of life strive in the opposite direction, they organize the decomposing matter and give it new structures. Man's (possibly) free will can be described as a break in the chain of causality - a prerequisite for something unpredictable to occur.
