"The rationale of painting contains the concept of a rectangular area, the characteristics and values of which are defined by having a surface that clings to a wall. Rudi, who never ceases to be intrigued by the notion, challenges this 'ideology' by taking the painting forward a few centimeters away from the wall.
He presents three-dimensional objects that hang in the middle of, or goes through, the surface of a canvas, creating a painting that can be seen from two sides as a real space. Thus it no longer leans its existence against the wall...
...painting is no more than a four-sided object that responds to a wall, the background that thus far has given it its life and existence. If a painting changes neither its form nor purpose nor function , but moves either towards or away from the wall, could we insist that the 'painting' is still a painting?"
