Jost Munster


Jackson's Art Prize 2024
152 x 102 cm


Jost Münster uses an extensive vocabulary of painterly textures and complementary forms of expression to transport us into pretended spaces. In terms of motifs, he draws from the observation of colours, forms and structures in the urban environment. He questions the composition and structure of buildings and structures, of façades, windows, gates or silhouettes for their pictorial content and transforms them into differentiated colour and material compositions. In doing so, he does not shy away from sculptural rulings in space and applied collage elements made of found and used objects.

Painting and material meet, involve us in a polyphonic conversation about the relationship between old and new, visible and invisible, real and painted space and sensitise our perception for the aesthetics of the everyday.
