Christian Neuman Artist Bio:

Chris Neuman (born Luxembourg 1979) is an artist, creative director and filmmaker working in London and Luxembourg. Coming from the world of fashion and cinema, I am constantly exposed to a flood of images. The lifespan of an image has never been as short as nowadays and is directly accessible everywhere to nearly everyone through the internet. This new ease in collection visual material through the internet has deeply affected society, pop culture, the creative industry and also my work. I believe that all visual material circulating the World Wide Web forms an entity of cultural heritage belonging to us all. The medium itself has emerged into creating its own visual code. (Selfies, Memes etc). My interest as an artist is to currently choose painting as the most appropriate art form in dealing with this change of how visual information is communicated and easily distorted through electronic image manipulation. My paintings are built upon carefully curated selections of images found on the internet. Rather that working with physical subjects and objects in my studio, I compose all my paintings from found "material" and assemble them. The curating of images is key and withholds my social and cultural DNA. My approach is somehow in opposition to the traditional idea of painting, as I don't know most subjects, objects or places portrayed. The outcome is "imagined" sceneries that have art historical roots n German romanticism., abstract expressionism and surrealism. The artist of our time is though not in touch with the content itself. I discover the world through the screen and can only visualize what has been felt, created and digested before by someone else. My paintings are crippled realities in that Sense that without most semantic information behind a constructed curtain. www.focusart.com
