The artist explained his own work in 1996 by stating the following: “I think what we all want from art is a sense of fixity, a sense of opposing the chaos of daily living. This is an illusion, of course. Canvas rots. Paint changes color. But you keep trying to freeze the world as if you could make it last forever. In a sense, what I’ve tried to capture is the reality of flux, to keep art an open, incomplete situation, to get at the rapture of seeing.”

Blue red rocker is a movement based performance created in reaction to the sculpture by Ellsworth Kelly. According to the artist his sculptures start from the painting and continue in the space. We are interested in the space that the sculpture creates - the illusion of a triangle while the sculpture has only 2 surfaces. Interpretation of the balance is a triggering aspect. This performance is a natural, physical continuation of the Rocker.
