Surface, Structures and Textures

Janus Hochgesand (born 1981 in Dierdorf, lives and works in Hamburg) refers to his paintings as “High Intensity Paintings”-paintings whose form and content are condensed and exhibit a high concentration of material layering. The paintings are created by the artist using a broom or vacuum cleaner to generously deposit pigment onto the canvas and working on it in repetitions by heaping it on and taking it away. Hochgesand found his way to his practice through sculpture. As a student with Andreas Slominski and later at the Städelschule with Tobias Rehberger, he found that the canvas, always laid flat on the studio floor, was his medium. In the superimpositions of layers of paint, the artist picks up on the aesthetics of Abstract Expressionism and Informel, but condenses these influences into paintings in his own performative way, with music playing a leading role in their creation in the studio.

Muy Mucho, meaning “very much,” is published in parallel with Hochgesand’s exhibition at the Ludwig Museum in Koblenz. Based on 16 selected works, the book reveals the artist’s working method. Sebastian Baden and Jens Asthoff wrote the texts, while Julia Voss conducted a conversation with the artist. With a foreword by Beate Reifenscheid.
