Text by Hans Rudolf Reust
This fully illustrated catalogue was published on the occasion of Raoul De Keyser’s first solo exhibition at David Zwirner in 2001, which presented a ten-part series of paintings. Each work in the series follows a different compositional logic and relies on an economical use of biomorphic and geometric forms, squares, lines, and dots. The title of the series Come on, play it again carries musical connotations, as if encouraging an improvisational jazz pianist while simultaneously suggesting the possibility of infinite variation. Also included is a text by critic Hans Rudolf Reust.
