I licked the Yellow Suit of the Sun

The paintings of Lipp&Leuthold (Paul Lipp and Reto Leuthold, both *1977) are born of a continuous dialogue. In their joint work on a painting, the artists inter change painterly drafts which in further stages are complemented, deleted, painted over and altered until a composition emerges and establishes itself. They use different techniques and pictorial idioms, allowing their works to be defined by the paint application, the traces of differ ent tools or the process of form finding. Lipp&Leuthold also humorously integrate the banal, the nonsensical and clichés from everyday culture into their art. Using this mode of practice they pursue issues to do with authorship as well as the pos sibilities and conditions of joint picture production. For the exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Luzern they have created new works in which they interlace printing techniques and painting so as to fath om the potential of that combination.
