The series "Signs of Life" concentrates on the idea of a universally comprehensive picture language made up of mundane objects like the paintbrushes, flashlights and folding chairs Craig-Martin has made into a screensaver (which is available from MoMA.org) and objects from the art world, of which he says, "To draw Piero [della Francesca] is the same thing to me as drawing a shoe." Or, as he demonstrates, as drawing a Seurat. Canvases and wall-filling paintings conjoin here into a total artwork with a strong personality. Michael Craig-Martin, whom the BBC has called "the father of Britart" has taught at Goldsmiths College, London, since 1974. His work has been shown in the UK at the Hayward Gallery, the Whitechapel Gallery and the Tate Modern, and in the U.S. at Gagosian Gallery and The Museum of Modern Art.

In appropriating 11 sculptures, 11 reliefs, and 11 objects by Hans Arp, Michael Craig-Martin presents everyday objects--a mobile, a shoes, a pair of scissors--that he has drawn on black-and-white wall surfaces. These mural drawings, which belong to the artist's new work group that he realized at the Rolandseck railway station near Bonn, Germany, show stylized objects that have been linked to each other by a repeated pattern that expands to an allover network. Into these object drawings, Craig-Martin has integrated paintings of his objects, positioned on the same motif. This interplay between appropriation and originality--often practiced by the artist--is already apparent in his treatment of originals by his colleagues, for example, Jasper John's beer cans or Magritte's pipe. The exhibition, documented here by numerous illustrations, brings this appropriation process to our attention once more. The fact that Arp's sculptures and reliefs lead to Craig-Martin's works invites the viewer to reflect on the original versus its interpretation.
