The abstract geometrical paintings of Joachim Grommek (born 1957) make overt reference to the art of Malevich, Mondrian, Palermo and Ryman, casting themselves as “authentic forgeries” of these precedents but precisely and brilliantly mimicking in enamel paint cheap materials such as adhesive tape and chipboard. This volume surveys works of the past few decades.
