Oliver Dorfer






This is a first New York outing for the young Austrian Oliver Dorfer, and the works he is showing at the Freight And Volume Gallery (from January 15 – February 21) come from his ongoing “pulpproject” series, so named for his source material drawn from the pages of comic books and other cheap publications. Subjecting them to collaged and Photoshopped mutation, Dorfer then paints them on the reverse side of large sheets of Plexiglas. The remarkable results, super-smooth and more than six feet square in the full-scale pieces, meld the appearances of Pop art, shop windows, and medieval woodcuts. It makes for an unsettling mix.(Artinfo)
