Entirely Pictorial. Publisher's description: American painter Carl Ostendarp (b. 1961) believes in a world in which a serious painter can make work that does not demand connoisseurship from his audience. His installations employing walls of continuously painted two-tone wave shapes as a backdrop for deceptively simple cartoonlike paintings and sculptures are intended to re-contextualize the gallery space and refresh our way of seeing. In his newest project,Book, Ostendarp re-creates the continuous-wave motif using the pages of the book as gallery walls, inviting viewers to project their own imagery while merging the foundations of Modernism, Pop, Color Field and Minimalism into his simple biomorphic forms. Available in two versions -- blue (see Worldwide 168527) or red -- Book makes space for Ostendarp's viewers to play and create their own installation, in reality or imagination.
