GermanyFigurative Surrealist Contemporary
My paintings open up to the almost forgotten memory.
Hamburg-based artist Jonathan Esperester uses the medium of painting analogue to the act of remembrance. For inspiration, he draws on his private photo archive and extracts motifs from their original environment and chronology. Through this collage-like linking, anachronistic constellations and unknown history emerge, beyond space and time. In this artistic research, overlapping connections of subject, culture, and nature often emerge and the viewer is allowed to become part of this fictional narrative. Esperester experiments with materiality in painting and is always searching for history in the changing present.Show more Show Less
