Painting problematics in intangible and imaginate spaces

Painting offers a transformative act that proposes the idea of an intangible and imaginative space outside of a indexical or proto-photo process.
When the act is restored to a visual investigation over some idea of truth, it is only then that the act of painting can operate within the current art world, as a part of it, not with intent to control it.

"This is why painting is interesting today. Its medium is non-affirmative and anarchic. Its potential is rooted here. This potential unfolds when outside information is imported into the medium's specific loop." Katharina Grosse.
