In his artistic exploration, Furger engages in a multi-layered process involving the application of graffiti on metal or aluminum boards, followed by intentional cleaning or over-painting with graffiti-killers. This deliberate intervention allows him to navigate and manipulate the effects of transience, resulting in diverse compositions of color clouds, wipe marks, drips, and swings driven by spontaneous chemical reactions. Contrary to the conventional high gloss appearance of art in gallery settings, Furger’s pieces challenge these norms, offering a deliberate departure from typical representations of lettering, calligraphy, and style. Instead, his work presents an abstract portrayal of the aesthetics of speed and transience.
This intricate process of graffiti application, cleaning, and over-painting introduces an additional layer of transience, as solvents used in cleaning can leave stains and discolorations on the original material. Repainting this process can lead to unintentional and spontaneous chemical reactions, emphasizing the transient nature of graffiti.
