The riddle of the evolution in Christian Rosa's work involves his restriction of materials and getting rid of brushwork. In this series of work, having reduced the palette and materials drastically, he was able to lighten the load and create something that feels very fresh. These works involve oil, charcoal, pencil, resin, and oil stick, but the forms created with these tools show no brushwork and remain autonomous in their discrete areas of the canvas: a smudge; a blue circle line; a penciled line; a flat black square traversed by a white squiggly line.
