"We are painters. We paint what we see. We paint what is good!" – with these sentences we introduce our manifesto "Good Painting". The slogan, which at first seems brash, dissolves in the further manifesto as a humorous play with clichés and ironic comparisons, in distinction to the concept of bad painting, just as we deal with painting. Our paintings are an interweaving of formal elements, art historical quotations and a lot of irony. We draw on what surrounds us in our own lives and everyday life, pop culture, the internet or even art and cultural history. Figurative, associative, subjective and also abstract are words that can be used to describe our craft. Key subject in our work is the examination of the German middle class milieu, the associated clichés and insignia of German national culture.
