This piece by Armleder is part of his ongoing series of so-called "Pour Paintings", which can extend to over a dozen meters in length. They are created from whole containers of acrylic, lacquer and spray paint and executed from a mobile scaffold, enabling the artist to replay the allover action painting of a Jackson Pollock or Morris Louis but without getting splattered.
