Ζωγραφική: Alexander Jannson

Ζωγραφική: Alexander Jannson

One aspect that all of Jannson’s work have in common, is the absence of the sun. The only source of light in his world is the moon (or a moon). Inhabitants have to get by with the help of lanterns and fires. The absence of the sun contributes to the overall infatuating melancholic and almost ‘dirty’ look of his art (which is a good thing). I compare his unique look to that of vintage photographs – his work has a ‘grainy’ almost ‘scratchy’ like texture and lacks the boldness that a modern camera’s flash would give (which is once again a good thing).
