Sven Dalsgaard’s painting is its title. The green painted canvas is 103.7 cm high, as it witnessed by the tape measure. So the title tells us what we see.
As a minimalist work of art, the painting is devoid of meaning and refers only to itself. But there is nevertheless something else: a green painted canvas with an attached tape measure seems absurd, a challenge to the traditional view of a work of art as either a reproduction of nature or an abstract. Sven Dalsgaard has created this work with a twinkle in his eye and as a comment on those works in the history of art that are filled with meaning.
