Jens Hausmann Modern Architecture Paintings 6

At first glance the paintings of Berlin based Jens Hausmann are simply beautiful images of sharply linear modern architecture. But, when one looks below the surface of these utopian cement spaces there is something far more captivating than simple homages to a building form. What begins to emerge is a sense of the surreal, mainly driven by otherworldly colors and wide angle perspectives, and partly by the subtle placement of his occasionally visiting figures: one person stares at the wall; another kneels, their head hiding in a cupboard. It’s a beautifully quiet, if slightly un-nerving, world.

Hausmann earned his degree in sculpture and painting at HFBK Dresden, clearly using both influences in his form oriented works. Now, after moving to Berlin, he exhibits his works regularly. You can see more of his paintings on Flickr, Facebook, or jenshausmann.eu. Read more about the ideas behind his paintings (in German) at art-report.com.
