Bad Painting is a collection of narrative paintings that depict true stories of atrocities.

As the maker of the paintings I am emotinonally connected to the stories in terms of being touched by the acts, by the pain and/or by the suffering of the characters depicted within. It is not my intention to finger-point at human society from a moral high ground but rather to document the crimes and maybe the moral dilema. Besides this, painting these stories releases some of the pain I feel when reading or hearing about them and hence helps me deal with the hardships of life. Yes, you can call it art therapy if you like. You might not want to call it art at all. That is up to the viewer. I am not sure if I can call them art myself as the intention of working on this series has never been the creation of art but rather - as already mentioned – help myself digest the harsh and brutal actions of people.

The paintings explore our underlying basic system of morality, bad and good and furthermore human societal concepts and perception of reality. I also would like to question very regular patterns of behaviour and how we perceive the world.

Although I don't consider my paintings to belong to the popular genre of Bad Painting, I have always been fascinated by the freedom of 'bad' painters such as Joan Brown or Neil Jenney. I use the term Bad Painting as the title of this specific series of work. 'Badly' painting doesn't only set me free from the constraints of 'good' & 'decent' technique but also gives me a feeling of everything-goes/everything-is-fine. There are obviously a lot of people who don't like this series, not only because of the way they are painted but also due to the themes and subject matters. During the process of working on this series (since 2013) I have come to terms with the unpopularity of the work and now I simply don't care if people love, like, dislike or even hate my paintings.

Jay Rechsteiner’s Bad Paintings (2013) brings the horrors of human culpability front and center. We don’t have to look too far to see the atrocities within our communities. Turn on the news, take an extended walk through familiar streets. Sadness and pain are everywhere. Rechsteiner states that his “main interest [is] in the underlying structure of things [and how] his artworks directly respond to the surrounding environment and . . . everyday experiences.” We so often look for beauty in everything. Why not accept the ugliness of misery? Confront it and learn how to deal with it? Rechsteiner wrestles with these ideas in his studio and asks the same of his viewer. He wishes to “demonstrate how life extends beyond [our] own subjective limits,” to tell “a story about the effects of global cultural interaction,” and “the binaries we continually reconstruct between Self and Other, between our own ‘cannibal’ and ‘civilized’ selves.”
