JUTTA KOETHER & STEVEN PARRINO, invitation Black Bonds, 2002

‘Jutta and I had a discussion about failed paintings. Maybe the color wasn’t right or they were fucked-up in some way (physically, ideologically, or by situation). Our solution was to save them by blacking them out, canceling the image/object. A positive/negative, deconstruct to reconstruct, chaos to order to chaos… We decided to show these reclaimed paintings and dedicate the show to George Grosz’s Deathdada, caught in the flux between dissonance and consonance.’ Steven Parrino 2001
