Artist statement:

Julian Lorber’s artworks are a combination of layers of mixed media and paint. Built upon a canvas-like panel that is conceived as an “architecture of pollution”, they are in fact made of superposed “externalities”, as an echo to soot and graffiti paint build up on urban architecture. On the outer surface, they play with textures and light, reaching a balance between emotional and cerebral effect – the subtle color shades having a strong, immediate appeal while their material (such as aerosol paint inspired by automotive painting and cosmetic or makeup) reminds us of the concepts the artist wants to explore: architecture, urban activity, progress, waste…

Lorber considers his work as science fiction, a process and as a language. He recreates a form of communication – between materials, between inside and outside, but also between art forms. “These small works”, he says, “are the new step in my process of mixed media layering and my addition to the history of painting using modernistic, industrial and environmental concepts.”
