Tobias Spichtig - Fridge & Mind Again

Tobias Spichtig’s non-conformist aesthetics offer a very strong signal-to-noise ratio within a changing art system. His large-scale paintings and room-spanning sculptures relay the image-world of his network – the art/music scenes with which he’s deeply involved – fusing it to the art historically significant forms while understanding painting as an original aggregator/screen. As art now lives a double life in virtual space, the question arises as to what gives it power not just as a physical work but also as image? Afterall, while a painting’s value cannot rest on image alone, a work’s “success” in today’s image economy is often correlated to its dispersion and reach. Of course, art history has always valued the memetic potential of art – from sculptural tropes of antiquity to the drawings of Tom of Finland. At present the stakes seem particularly high.
