Los Angeles-based artist working in oil painting and mixed media on canvas, paper and wood. Her work has been focused for some time around questions of migration, with her most recent series exploring the historical legacies of Westward Expansion and Manifest Destiny in America, and the activation of those legacies in our contemporary historical moment.
Berlin based artist focusing on lost identities in urban and social structures. Through appropriations and transformations she analyses the vanishing process and rebuilds a new space of image and word by layering fragments out of her environment.
‘The pretzel can symbolise the crossing of limbs in prayer. My work at Kaus has been using this motif to create a pretzel totem, while still delighting in its triviality. Here I’ve also given the pretzel-icon an earthy contrast with paintings of squelchy, muddied limbs in play and the suggestion of ancient votive offerings.’
‘Kaus Australis is the gift from the universe that was required to set my sails in a new direction. The experiment is on!’
A painter and photographer, Jens avoids the sublimity of greatness. Rather the ‘mistake’ and ‘failing’ are the impetus for his images.
KAUS BAND EVENT
