Catalogue Note

“The Mires [...] have a familiar syntax, however nominally skewed. They reify the rules of graffiti art and children’s art -- seemingly rule-less and unruly, yet with their own rigid conventions and predictable character.”

Donald Kuspit, ‘Jean Dubuffet Quixotic Quicksand? Jean Dubuffet’s “Groundless” Paintings,’ Artnet Magazine, 31 January 2012, n.p.
