I got an insane, excessive hit of pleasure from images of Olaf Nicolai's Considering a Multiplicity of Appearances in Light of a Particular Aspect of Relevance. Or: Can Art Be Concrete. that I first saw on VVORK


More from Joanne Mattera's blog.

I understand this pleasure you speak of. I too am giddy while soaking in the repetition of gradient sameness. cool.

There's another gradient piece by Cory Arcangel that was posted on Artfagcity in a review by Karen Archey. Much of the commentary was critical, though I liked it enough at the time I saw it.

That said, I find this work by Olaf Nicolai to be much more satisfying to me as an artist and a viewer.

More colour. Which reminds me of Rafael Rozendaal's color flip.
