Andreas Johnen – artist-in-residence studio

During the Brussels Gallery Weekend, Fondation CAB will open the doors to our artist-in-residence studio.
The artist is Andreas Johnen (German, b.1974).
In his practice Andreas uses different methods to saturate paper with colour. He simply applies the paint until the paper can hold no more. Making large, multi-part watercolors, Johnen tapes the paper horizontally to wooden plates and pours paint onto its surface two liters at a time, repeating the procedure up to 120 times. The paper comes to life, swells and convulses under the color as they merge. Although seemingly similar, these monochromes each have a life of their own – and one not just determined by the method that brought them into being, but by the material characteristics of each colour pigment, given time and space to breathe.
