One of the central questions for artistic work in recent decades has related particularly to art production conditions. Against this background, Panetta makes the given conditions of the exhibition world and art production his own in his work produced since 2002. This leads to groups of works whose names always start with the word PROXY. The PROXY AFFAIRS series shifts paintings that artists have rejected over the years and that have simply piled up in their studios into a different state by covering them with black plastic film. Once the pictures have been masked like this they are placed within a business context in terms of evaluation,under changed author and ownership conditions as representatives of the commodity value of art.
