Oliver Dorfer: Oceana

In the work of Oliver Dorfer, images sourced from pop culture and mass media are stripped to their barest components and laid out flat in bold, but sparing colors to create vivid graphics that, once painted on the reverse of acrylic glass, present themselves more as screens like those of televisions or computer displays than traditional painting. The components remain vaguely recognizable yet are devoid of iconography, reflecting the multitude of pop-media experience as though viewed through a fisheye lens.
