Cologne-based artist, David Ostrowski (b. 1981) has created an “oeuvre of paintings that comes almost eerily close to the idea of this kind of zero point, while simultaneously reminding us of the impossibility of ever truly getting there”, as Daniel Schreiber explains in a reference to Roland Barthes’ famous zero degree. “According to Barthes, every artwork always also conveys the illusions of the culture in which it was created and whose language it employs. The mesh of everyday myths is ineluctable, the thicket of codes impenetrable. And yet the desire for a zero point is vital. Without this desire, art would be inconceivable”, explains Schreiber.
