Mimesis is Greek for replication or imitation. This is an artistic investigation on the statement that art – whatever else it may be – is not a Mimesis of the world. I paint from a photograph that was taken of a person (a mimesis) and imitate the photograph. Then I replicate the first painting, then replicate the second one etc. It is a copy of a copy of a copy …

The investigation might reveal the amazement that art could indeed be found in a Mimesis.
