Press release

Almine Rech Brussels is pleased to announce Jan-Ole Schiemann’s first solo presentation with the gallery, Les fleurs du mal à la tête, on view from October 28 until December 4, 2021. The exhibition will feature new paintings and paperworks.

Jan-Ole Schiemann’s gestural abstractions and poetic exits bear witness to oscillation: from figurative to abstraction, cut-ups to hazy mists, cartoonish to existential, tumbling carefree kinetics to the political. Undeniably, Schiemann’s approach is different: he asks the canvas to deal with everything and nothing at the same time. It’s this psychological splitting, this spirited, layered approach that erupts boldly, unshrinkingly in collage, reminding us that our perception of depth is very much within our control.
