John M Armleder attracted attention in the 1980s as a proponent of the so-called "Neo-Geo" style. His work, however, is essentially an expression of his involvement in the Fluxus movement of the early 1960s and shows a profundity that goes beyond this brief trend. Armleder's scepticism of elaborate structures of meaning and stylistic labelling can be seen, amongst other things, in the fact that he refers to Constructivist criteria as if a breath of Dadaism had swept through the carefully constructed shell.

This piece by Armleder is part of his ongoing series of so-called "Pour Paintings", which can extend to over a dozen metres in length. They are created from whole containers of acrylic, lacquer and spray paint and executed from a mobile scaffold, enabling the artist to replay the allover action painting of a Jackson Pollock or Morris Louis but without getting splattered.

Action or movement is played out in Armleder's multicolour fluorescent tube sculptures, as in this collapsed pile of coloured tubes. The exuberance of these works evokes Dan Flavin's investigations with light as well as the dazzling light of a nightclub, another conflation of antagonistic content and values.
