Jan Aine has worked briefly as a media designer since 2000 and since then as art and creative director of an in-house design department. Since 2008 he has been working fully analog again in his Kreuzberg studio (Berlin).
In search of what a work needs to express itself, I set myself a limited framework in the square and developed a very narrow color space. This clear reduction contrasts with a blasting of the surface. It is not a closed area, but a torn open, processed area that has something to experience and tell. This way of working gives rise to an examination of temporal processes. My creative process takes place in multiple work cycles, so it takes time and expresses time at the same time.
He himself describes his work as follows: "In my abstract relief painting I have found a way to follow my intuition, which breaks through as soon as I enter my studio. Driven by the urge of my inner pictures, I express my constant curiosity. I constantly seek dialogue between my works and the viewer. The multi-layered approach means that my works can also be seen as a mirror of my environment."
