Lazarides is thrilled to present Whistleblower, the latest showcase of dynamic paintings and mixed-media landscape installations by New York born artist Marcus Jansen.
Over the last decade Jansen's subject matter has continued to question a puzzling, fast moving world transformed through rich gestural paintings. The artist leads his audience on a journey across multiple views of abstract narrative scenes, combining action painting with objective subject matter while playing with space, light and perspective.
The new series of complex constructions comment largely on socio-political issues of today, suggesting depth and movement within a flat plane using dramatic contrasts of colour, form, and texture.
Jansen belongs to a new generation of artists exploring urban-influenced forms of expressionism, constructing landscapes with an embedded connection between street and contemporary art disciplines. Demonstrating a keen awareness of his surroundings the artist creates a surreal atmosphere filled with subconscious revelations that foretell of a future fraught with consequence.
