Moving Space

German artist Martin Kasper travels through time. Whether his paintings portray the future or the past, however, we cannot be sure. The imaginary foyers, restaurants, and living spaces may seem typical of post-war Europe in the 1950s and 1960s, yet they also reveal unexpected futuristic elements. Created by Kasper in rich orange and red tones, these spaces leave the viewer with an ambiguous understanding of time; it’s this elusive aesthetic that characterises his fascinating works.

Wide windows give us an almost panoramic perspective, whilst spiral staircases with glass steps lead us up into the unknown. The atmospheric compositions are packed with details from countless different interiors, with the experiences from journeys through Russia, the Ukraine, and Germany. Before beginning his large format paintings, Kasper begins by taking photographs of rooms and then proceeds to draft sketches. Layer by layer, the real life shots are transformed into painted works in a continual process of addition and redesign.

Kasper’s architectonic works betray no hint of human life. We search in vain for straggling visitors left behind in the theatres and restaurants; empty chairs and tables give the rooms a slightly theatrical quality and ensure the paintings from the “Moving Space” series occupy a middle ground between dreams and reality.

Martin Kasper studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe, where he was also awarded grants. His works have already appeared in countless exhibitions, in particular in Germany and France, and can be found in the Frieder Burda Museum in Baden-Baden, Germany. In 2011, Kasper was appointed Lecturer at the Haute école des Arts du Rhin in Strasbourg, France.
