Jan Albers is among a new generation of artists who deal closely with painting, materiality and space installation. With its rays pictures that he draws on paper or walls, he creates impressive works between sculpture and painting. In his hole-paintings he creates multi-layered portraits which radiating almost aggressive power. In 2008 he, together with Jens Ullrich, devoted a solo exhibition at the Museum Morsbroich in Leverkusen, which he himself directed.
Our archive also contains interviews and video footage of his solo exhibition in 2009 at Van Horn Gallery and his overview show in 2015 at the Kunsthalle Barmen in Wuppertal.
