All the works on view illustrate a coming to terms with the city: with the inhabitants of the city, with experiences drawn from daily life and fleeting observations, with current mental and media-based images. The city, imagined today as an overlapping structure embodying political, economic, social and cultural factors, is reflected and interpreted through appropriation to the painterly medium – in such a way that clichés and stereotypes have just as important a part to play in the conception and perception of urban reality as do ideas that deviate from the mainstream.
