+ Galerie Max Hetzler

Akin to his ongoing interest in American high and low culture, Prince integrates elements of and references to music culture to the works exhibited. Playing with the sense and texture of collage, painting and printing, these recent canvases include actual or scanned and printed record sleeves, stapled and glued onto the surface as well as photos, posters, magazine covers, some even contain real bras along with images of such (perhaps hinting at a two person rock band called Black Bra that Prince once was part of). Paint and oil stick are seemingly rapidly applied, covering parts of the collaged surface and canvas while leaving others empty so that the underlying plane stays visible, creating an impression of depth through overlapping layers.
