Quarter Circle Painting stripes and wine stains
Quarter Circle Painting stripes and wine stains, 2018
4 parts, 75x75 cm
Claudia Comte created a series of canvases entitled Quarter Circle Painting. Inspired by the convivial aspect of drinking wine during meals, the artist painted a series of black graphic motifs on white canvases. Divided into four equal sections, they form a diamond shape where circular marks left behind by glasses of red wine are clearly visible. The paintings relate the history of art with everyday functions, through the inclusion of disturbing elements within the work. For the conical-shaped label, Comte chose an “optical” motif where marks left by red wine appear.
