Jonas Mayer: 7 Bilder & 1 Paar Stiefel

March 17, 2023 - April 28, 2023

7 Bilder & 1 Paar Stiefel

In the ‘7 Bilder & 1 Paar Stiefel´ (7 Paintings & 1 pair of boots) exhibition in THE BACKROOM, Mayer depicts his favorite toys in six canvases and in one painting on wood. Combining classical oil and acrylic painting, the washed out effect is a technique which Jonas Mayer inherited from his grandmother making the personal connection to his childhood and memories even more inherent. The central piece is a carousel which is painted on a wooden table desk that was carved out to appear like a sunshade over a carousel. The two boots are equally made of wood plates that the artist found and then cut out.
