Jan Muche

The paintings of the artist Jan Muche, born in 1975 in Herford, East Westphalia, are abstract works with a three-dimensional effect. They show a juxtaposition and superimposition of supporting and tensioning structures of bridges, electricity pylons, old factory buildings and are composed of many contrasting color surfaces. "Many [paintings] show modern machines and apparatus. The motifs come from old magazines and books. ... Playing with color surfaces and forms, making visible and at the same time dissolving structures - these old machines are better suited for my form of painting. ... The motifs are pretexts to be able to paint," explains the artist. 1992-1995 apprenticeship as a lithographer, 2001-2006 master's degree in painting under Prof. K.H. Hödicke at the University of the Arts, Berlin, 2008-2011 teaching position at the Berlin-Weißensee School of Art, 2011 guest professorship in painting at the CDK Hangzhou / China. Jan Muche lives and works in Berlin.
