werner reiterer’s work often leaves me with a polite chuckle, as if someone has started the joke with the punchline. although i hardly find his work memorable, again that might not be the artist’s intention; in this case i get the feeling that the humor is forced and trying too hard to be accurate and concise. it can too often cost a work its complexity and result in art’s version of slapstick. i however believe his work might yet mature into the ironic commentary he sets out to achieve.
