Andreas Leikauf recycles words, which puts the recycling of pictures taken from newspapers and magazines on a new level: empty catch phrases are unmasked, high-gloss pictures begin to crack, bucolic settings wobble and wilt, customary things are filtered and become obscure, and what is simple, unspectacular, actually a detail, is made significant. The letters and words seem to float in space, or are woven into parts of a painting, such as pieces of paper, scrolls, jackets, T-shirts, ties or other garments. Leikauf presents contemporary emblems to the onlooker; yet their delightful appearance is offset by the juveniles that he shows. This is what the resonance contains which bounces off these mostly two-colored pictures: a sad emptiness and the advice not to be gullible. “
