Why we like it

As simple as a child impersonating somebody else during a game, a sequence that often reverberates in Mayer’s work. Interacting with his paintings, we are readily thrown back in time: assuming a “role” once more becomes a practice for grasping the pliability of one’s own being, theatre, ludic and discovery instincts.
