Philipp MURAS-KRASZNAHORKAI
Philipp Muras-Krasznahorkai deals with the void, the immaterial, and the invisible in various ways. In his long-term picture-series he creates paintings with minimalist aesthetic concepts of abstraction. He electrifies pictures by installing sockets to charge them with invisible energy (Socket Paintings). He burns objects to convert them into painting without depicting them (Ash Paintings). He uses oil-tablecloth as canvas and removes the existing prints by processing them with solvents to create empty spaces (Tablecloth Paintings). He paints monochrome grey pictures and only lets colors appear at the edges (Edge Paintings). He uses the camouflage colors of warships to paint the vast, calm sea (Warship Paintings). Philipp Muras-Krasznahorkai was born in 1979 in Bremen, lives and works in Berlin, currently residing in Budapest.
