German Artist Moki has created a series of paintings on wooden canvasses. The texture of this material gives the paintings an interesting feel. This is because Moki uses the wood, not as something to be painted over, but as part of her palette. In one painting, Moki depicts a person holding a slab of wood in front of their face -- what better way to portray this slab of wood than with actual wood?
Moki demonstrates that painting, illustration, sculpture -- most art, in fact -- can be thought of as illusory; hence that witty remark by Magritte that "this is not a pipe." In this series, Moki cleverly blurs the line between background and foreground and between subject and portrayal.
