Jens Heller


Berlin, Germany

Jens Heller's paintings unite the stylistic peculiarities of several artistic flows. Starting out from the means of traditional realistic oil painting he integrates the unreal and supernatural dream sphere of surrealistic tendencies.

He uses fine graded nuances that evoke a very high degree of plasticity. However by focusing on detail and enlarging the dimensions, his paintings seem to be imaginary and visionary. In terms of content he works on several levels of meaning. Refusing the immediate narrative coherency, his attention will be targeted to the meta-level. In this way he deals with sense and perception of the individual.
