“Door, window, table, basket, mirror, rug. These six simple elements—found in many a living room and throughout the glossy pages of any home furnishing catalogue—are the components of a series that Richard Artschwager began creating in 1974. Artschwager repeated these same elements over and over to explore a variety of artistic approaches across media, but particularly in works on paper. In some of these compositions, the six shapes are arranged in a space that utilizes perspective, as if the artist were depicting an actual or imagined interior. In others, the forms are stacked one atop another, or arranged in a ring; occasionally the components are stretched or bloated to form near abstractions”. [Katherine Alcauskas, 21/1/2013,].
