John Armleder has been using the dot motif since the late 1970s and they can be found in the artist’s paintings, drawings, prints and even multiple objects. Clearly paying homage to such avant-garde artists as Francis Picabia, Alexander Rodchenko, Larry Poons and even Tom Downing, John Armleder, through his notion of appropriation, has raised the simple, optical concept and arrangement of dots from a pure mode of abstract pictorial composition to a systematic concept of representation and perhaps even structural analysis.
