Barbara Kasten, Diptych II 84

 “I am not dealing with reality—I’m creating my own reality.”

Barbara Kasten discusses Diptych II 84, 1984, in the context of her overall practice. Featuring various materials such as corrugated plastic, mirror, and mylar awash in hyper-saturated complementary colors, Kasten’s vibrant Cibachrome diptych typifies the Postmodern aesthetic of the 1980s. This work is featured in her current survey exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg.
