Reto Boller places parts of model kits on the lithographic stone. The layered, combined and modified "injection mouldings" become negative stencils, made visible in print by applying the lithographic ink. Embedded in the recognizable form of the stone, a field of tension is created between the inner spaces that have become and their contours. Barely foreseeable forms enrich the vocabulary, they make a rapid, linear exploration of the signs reminiscent of rayograms difficult. Like silhouettes, they form silhouettes, separating light from dark. Sometimes a recognizable proximity to real things facilitates the legibility of the objects, while at the same time making them appear enigmatic through other, unclassifiable areas. "Reto Boller's pictorial potential is to be found between solidification and dissolution, which basically no longer differentiates between abstract forms and representational echoes." (Sabine Arlitt)

With "B-side 1" the back of a Solnhofer limestone is printed on an exposure plate, with "magenta perforated" the wall becomes a formative element through cut-outs. By hanging directly on the wall, both the illusionistic and the real spatiality of the objects becomes significant. The artist was inspired by tools and materials found in the printing workshop.
