About The Publication

In the present book, Joseph Ramaseder makes use of found text fragments and references. This results in images on canvas taken, for example, from the trailer or a film or a passage teletext, making use of the old technique of encaustics. Current reflections on media are applied trough a traditional technique. Original meanings of words sentences and names are reduced in concrete poetic perception and, as aesthetic, expressive arrangements of letters, nearly break trough the borders of his picture formats. Ramaseder appropriates, transforms and creates post modern, inclonclusive weave of references in the media of painting, photography, video, installation and art in public space.
