Arnulf Rainer photographed himself grimacing to access a preverbal body language, but he felt the resulting images did not capture the psychic reality of his self-transformation. By uniting his photography and drawing Rainer created a tension between the comic and the tragic in which "all sorts of new personages suddenly appeared to me who, all being ME, were not capable of manifesting themselves solely by the movement of my muscles."
Arnulf Rainer, Arnulf Rainer: Facefarces, Bodyposes 1968-1975, exhibition catalogue (Paris: Galerie Stadler, 1975), unp.
