DESCRIPTION

In his works, Nathan Hylden (*1978, lives in Los Angeles) takes a conceptual approach to the conditions and effects of painting. While the medium of painting is generally associated with the idea of uniqueness, Hylden’s work is defined by seriality and based on automated repetition and the efficiency inherent to his chosen materials: standard unmixed metallic paints, fluorescent spray paints, templates and untreated canvases. The individual pieces are an integral part of a series or a complete set of works, created over a long period of time. Each one is an autonomous work and at the same time part of an ongoing process. He thus produces pictures that are undoubtedly intended as paintings, but which also suggest that this status may ultimately be the only thing their content aspires to.
