Jochen Hein. Art Karlsruhe Selection

 

Jochen Hein ( *1960 ) plays with the illusion of the effects of proximity and distance in his works: while his depictions of reflective sea surfaces, atmospheric skies, and green parks seem detailed and realistic when viewed from a distance, these representations of nature dissolve into abstract structures when approached.

Installation View
 

His works are fictional, yet evoke subjective memories within one. Through the absence of figures in Hein's works, the artist removes any distraction from the viewer's field of vision. Rather, one's own ideas, memories, and sensations are mirrored when viewing Hein's works.
