About this work

Robert Suermondt departs from an existing image: a print on a cardboard, remains of a tape, traces of color on a piece of paper, a photograph in a newspaper or a framed part of a previous canvas. Using collage or painting techniques, Robert’s artistic approach consists of creating another that presents itself as a new unity, though paradoxical and ambiguous, as when our eye finds a “grasp” the final object is always eluding and takes a different meaning.
