Cardinal shows an abstract image of rows of stately seats, seen from behind, with armrests and plush upholstery. He’s not there and neither are his colleagues, the cardinals, but their authoritarian, totalitarian spirit is overwhelmingly present. This tendency, that association with an institution, is not obvious when you only look at the properties of the image. Rather, there is an exciting rhythm of surfaces, lines and colors that convincingly also maintains its power when the image is rotated in other positions.
