In this particular series Boris Born uses a brighter palette than usual; his lines are more distinct, giving way to angular or organic shapes and their contrasting effects. The result seems like a scene from the landscape, objects, or creatures of a second nature or different planet.
In the process of painting, Born moves freely between mediums and tools: papers, concrete, lacquers, leaves, dust and ashes are some of the many unusual materials he likes. Playing with colours and textures, he paints, spreads, scrubs, stamps and assembles the material onto recovered floor boards.
The âpaintables' are kind of âthree dimensional' rather like objects: they are 5 cm thick and the painting continues on the sides. Most of the works are quite small (21 x 28 cm).
Boris Born is a German born artist based in London and exhibited in many group and solo shows across the UK and Germany.
