Boy & Erik Stappaerts' work focuses on the research of various sociological, political and emotional identities and entities that are being translated into labels and conceptualised into an abstract image. Fascinated by colour and its meaning, Stappaerts has developed a computer programme together with Kris Janssen which can mathematically construct colour transitions in polarisation format. He uses this programme to abstract the political and sociological systems of our everyday life to colour guides and labels and position them in a structural timeframe.

The Polarisation paintings are a product of this programme and Stappaerts interest in the polarising developments in everyday life. The colour gradations indicate how between the seemingly extremes a transition always prevails. The Polarisation paintings have no moralising intention, but instead question the various positions in communal communication, whilst remaining inside the framework of analysis.

This edition is available now from the Parasol unit shop and each is signed, dated and numbered by the artist.
