First edition. "This luxurious four-color album, with two additional fluorescent colors, has been made to the young German artist's specifications. While Reyle is primarily a painter, it is light in particular with which his paintings are concerned, both the light hitting pigment on canvas and, particularly, electric light, pale and acid, from the lamps and neon signs of the modern landscape. His found objects, almost readymades, function, therefore, like indices to his pictorial work. The phosphorescence of the paint, or that the paint gives to the objects, can be understood as a puzzle about a problematic medium, one whose solution here induces a new confidence and surprising expectations and wakes up the gaze. Reyle is represented in New York by Gavin Brown" (the publisher).
