About the product

Lamp bulbs, glasses, chain link, little perfume bottles, Allen keys, pieces of screws, … Richard Kaplenig gives everyday objects pride of place in his paintings. In subtle color gradations he reproduces them accurately, and they are thus staged like still lifes, in a reduced palette with the focus on black, white, and gray values, rounded out with hues of blue and violet. “Matter of fact, cool,” is how Willi Rainer describes the paintings in an essay accompanying the publication, while Arnold Mettnitzer speaks of a “masterful silence” shrouding the presentation of the objects. Verena Kienast writes: “He tends to choose small items that get overlooked in everyday life but which Kaplenig places on center stage, tearing them out of their conventional setting and infusing them with new meaning.”
