Thomas Bayrle at Galerie Mezzanin, Vienna

German artist Thomas Bayrle at the recent exhibition at Galerie Mezzanin, Vienna. A pioneer of German Pop Art, Bayrle is best known for his ‘super-forms’, large images composed of iterations of smaller cell-like images. Humorous, satirical, and often political, his paintings, sculptures, and digital images are commentaries on the systems of control and domination in a rapidly globalizing economy, via allegorical references to traffic patterns, mass production, and the generic designs of popular goods such as wrappers and wallpaper.
