The Thinker Goes to the Barbershop

2004–2007, 90x70 cm, oil on canvas

From early feminism to post-structuralism, icons of occidental critical thinking are
widely quoted and reinterpreted for texts,
in political and conceptual art, in the communication of art and so on.

The project explores these processes of these reinterpretations. Layers of concepts
(which may mean something or nothing at all) in the shape of psychedelic lines
and whirls are like an abstract landscape. The photographically painted heads of the thinkers
seem to sink into or emerge from beards, hairs and lines, resurrecting as gods of criticism.
