XXXL Painting

Andrea Alessi reviews the exhibition XXXL Painting: Klaas Kloosterboer, Chris Martin, Jim Shaw at Submarine Wharf, Rotterdam, Netherlands, on view through September 29, 2013.

Alessi writes: "Bigger isn’t better, just different. The works can be confrontational and immersive – you can literally step into a couple of them. There is no single vantage point, no correct encounter, but passivity isn’t really in your best interest. You can experience moments, a fragment, a whole: stand back and catch the 'big picture,' as it were, or move in to savor small details. Painting is a part of the reality it both reflects and explores, and when presented at this scale, it’s hard to ignore."
