Jonathan Esperester

The Hamburg-based artist Jonathan Esperester researches the human factor in life with his paintings. He moves anachronistically through his private photographic archive of three generations and abstracts motifs from their original surroundings and chronology. His collage-like linking creates new constellations and history beyond space and time. This artistic genealogy often reveals unexpected connections and patterns, that are also transferable to humanity itself. Jonathan experiments with materials and forms and is always in search of a glimpse of history in the rush of the changing present.
