Catalogue Note

"Rondinone’s Target Paintings seem at first to be straight appropriations of American Pop, color-field, and hard-edge abstraction. In fact, these works are less copies than giddy impersonations their irony and impurity coming through their deceptively simple surfaces like a five o’clock shadow on a drag queen. Slightly blurred and clearly vibrating as if electric, these Kenneth-Nolands-on-parade jiggle and cavort.”
Laura Hoptman, "Against Nature," in Parkett, No. 52, 1998, p. 134
