ALMINE RECH ANNOUNCES THE REPRESENTATION OF NEW YORK-BASED ARTIST MARCUS JANSEN.
Almine Rech is pleased to announce the representation of contemporary New York-based artist Marcus Jansen in Europe, the United Kingdom, and Asia and his inaugural solo exhibition at Almine Rech Paris in January 2021. Almine Rech will also be working with the artist in the United States in partnership with Richard Beavers Gallery (Brooklyn), who has represented Jansen since 2007.
Born in New York in 1968, Marcus Jansen creates powerful paintings that respond to his experiences from growing up in the U.S. and Germany as well as cultural and social-political themes. His socially charged urban landscape paintings are influenced by the two opposite worlds he grew up in.
Through his colorful and expressive brushwork, Jansen documents the human condition critically, socially and politically and invites the viewer to engage in the reflection.
In 2012, Jansen launched a new series that he named Faceless. The series is a departure from Jansen’s post-apocalyptic dystopian urban environments. His work challenges the traditional stylized rules that have governed the genre and creates a new form of portraiture while investigating structures of power and anonymity.
Jansen had his first European solo museum exhibitions at La Triennale di Milano Museum, Milan and the Museum Zitadelle Berlin. He has participated in the 12th International Print and Drawing Biennial in Taiwan at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Art. Works by Jansen are in collections of the Moscow Museum of Modern Art (MMOMA), The University of Michigan Museum of Art, The New Britain Museum of American Art, The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, The National Taiwan Museum of Fine Art, The Housatonic Museum of Art and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C.

Gregor Hildebrandt / Online Viewing Room
October 27 - November 8, 2020
Almine Rech is pleased to present "In bunten Sträußen ließ den Duft der Sterne schneien," an Online Viewing Room featuring ten new unique works by Gregor Hildebrandt.
All of the works in the show-whose title comes from Apparition, an 1862 poem by Stéphane Mallarmé-are part of Hildebrandt's ongoing "Reflections" series of flowers, which he began in 2009.
The resulting works are emotional, poetic, and deeply connected to the history of the still life, recalling flower works from the Dutch Golden Age, by Vincent Van Gogh, as well as Gerhard Richter. Richter is an appropriate touchstone for Hildebrandt, due to his use of blurred compositions and interest in exploring a range of expression from abstraction and figuration. Flowers offered a challenging opportunity for Hildebrandt to dramatically expand his repertoire. Flowers were so drastically different from the minimal, monochrome works in two- and three-dimensions he had become known for-and, as such, seemed almost impossible for him to create and integrate into his oeuvre.
