RAINER SPLITT pourings

The German artist Rainer Splitt just sent me the catalogue of his exhibition at the Museum gegenstandsfreier Kunst. It was a remarkable exhibition, thoughtful and beautiful and surprising at every turn.

A couple of glances inside the catalogue:

I wrote an essay about the work that is included in the catalogue. It begins with an assessment of the work called Ruby, Colorpour, owned privately (note the paintings by Gerhard Richter and Julije Knifer on the wall to the left):

About Scott Abbott

Ph.D. in German Literature from Princeton University, 1979. Then I taught at Vanderbilt University, BYU, and Utah Valley State College. At Utah Valley University, I'm Director of the Program in Integrated Studies and former Chair of the Department of Humanities and Philosophy. My publications include a book on Freemasonry and the German Novel, two co-authored books with Zarko Radakovic (published in Serbo-Croatian in Belgrade), and translations of a book by Austrian author Peter Handke and of a catalogue of an exhibit called "The German Army and Genocide." More famously, my children are in the process of creating good lives for themselves: as a model and manager, as a teacher of Chinese language, as a watershed scientist and science writer, as a jazz musician, as a corrections officer, as university students, and as parents. I share my life with UVU historian Lyn Bennett and our yellow dog Blue. Some publications at http://works.bepress.com/scott_abbott/

    Fascinating.
    By the way, I like the use of a rock to photograph the open book. I’m always at a loss as how to capture the sense of illustrations in a book.
