Gunther Förg uses the lead sheet mounted on wood as the substrate onto which he applies acrylic paint. Since the lead does not absorb the paint, paint and medium do not combine irreversibly. The paint, applied in various layers, is subject to different drying processes, through which individual hues are created. The shine of the metal contrasts with the matt colour of the acrylic to great effect, the partial unevenness of the material being an inherent part of the work.
