°1985, Ghent (BE) – lives and works in Ghent (BE)
Manor Grunewald creates large-format works on canvas and sculptures, which closely correspond with each other, addressing the artist’s experimental search for image content. In his recent works, Grunewald is concerned with the optics, visual conformity, imperfection and arbitrariness of the phenomenon of the black-and-white copy. On the canvases are superficially dark colour gradients, which, like the colours produced by a black-and-white photocopy machine, oscillate between shades of black, grey, violet and dark blue. The artist also transfers the “blackening”, distortion and layering of the photocopy process, which leads to colour stains, reflections, white edges and blurred objects, such as fragments of cartoon characters.
