Ink Lines 2 By Albert Janzen

Serbian artist Albert Janzen examines lines as his basic medium to perceive our environment.

After studying Philosophy and Mathematics in Berlin, London and Amsterdam, he decided to follow his artistic path while he discovered his love for the line. In 2015 Albert won the Luxembourg Art Prize 2015 whilst finishing his Masters in Logic at the University of Amsterdam. Inspired by the autonomous work of Cy Twombly, Gerhard Richter and Zao Wou-Ki, Janzen’s line drawings represent themselves as an independent entity. The lines are very simple and basic, so various patterns can be constructed. The ultimate simplicity of the line manifests its independent aesthetics. Albert draws lines not to make simple drawings, but to draw lines that create art by themselves. The shapes and patterns occurring in Janzen’s drawings have no other purpose than to reveal the movements of lines.
