Albert Oehlen: Mirror Paintings

Albert Oehlen: Mirror Paintings
Library Shelf Location 18.OEHL
Publication Date Mar 2006
Description As Albert Oehlen points out, artists have often depicted mirrors. But in this case he has built real mirrors into each work. With them, he collages the real space in front of the painting with its pictorial space, at once subverting the glass' iconographic significance and inviting the viewer into the picture only to throw him back out again.
