A mockup is a prototypeor preliminary model that represents a design or product. It serves as a tool for assessing how the final product will appear and function, as well as refining its design.
In this particular case, the four paintings that have been previously created are reproduced onto a single surface using screen printing, resulting in the final work that we see.
These paintings consist of large silkscreens of previously destroyed paintings.
The original paintings are then cease to exist, leaving their reproduced images on the large canvas to endure over time. In other words, the documentation replaces the original.
The emergence of the “installation view” in the realm of blogs and online magazines has revolutionized the way communication is approached in contemporary art.
This trend is also evident in the techniques and methods used to depict paintings.
No longer is it solely the painting itself that is the focus, but also the irregularities of the wall behind it or the shadows cast beneath it, which become part of the spectator’s perceptual experience and contribute to the painting’s final concept as an object or as documentation.
