"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." - Pablo Picasso
Fascinated by the way young children draw and paint, Rechsteiner works together with his two-year old daughter Delphine. In general the work explores aesthetics and pictorial composition with a focus on the notions of the concrete and the abstract, clash, balance, anarchy & the dialogue between opposites. It sheds light on the correlation between a structured understanding of painting (method) and the raw impulse to create.
