until 30.09. | #4009ARTatBerlin | Jarmuschek + Partner shows from 2. September 2023 the exhibition 1 : x ≤ ∞ Internal Topographies by the artist Jānis Šneiders.
Worlds open up in the paintings of Jānis Šneiders.
The fine lines of his single-point perspective grids get lost in the impenetrable depth of shadows and darkness. The high-contrast pictorial spaces created with few means seem at once clear and mysterious, highly objective and extremely dramatic. Without any scale or context, they leave us reeling between inner and outer infinities. In spite of a perceived representational nature, they are abstract structures that can be located both externally-topographically and internally. Not fixed on a meaning, they are open projection surfaces for the viewer’s imagination, for insights, memories, fears and longings.
Jānis Šneiders (*1995) lives and works in Riga. He studied painting at the Art Academy of Latvia from 2015 to 2019 and at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp during an Erasmus residency in 2018. He continued his studies at the Art Academy of Latvia until 2022, where he graduated with a Master’s degree in Visual Communication. His works have been shown in numerous solo exhibitions in Latvia and Sweden and are included in prestigious collections. In 2017 he received a Rotary Art Society scholarship, and in 2019 the NBYAA Young Painter Award. At the POSITIONS Berlin Art Fair 2020, Jānis Šneiders was presented as the recipient of the Claus Michaletz Prize for Eastern European Art of the Secco Pontanova Foundation.
