Oil on canvas.

Jakobus Durstewitz's solo exhibition “Twilight” presents his latest oil paintings, which exhibit a special play of colors. In the moments of twilight, the supposedly invisible air becomes visible in a special way: it is filled with rain, haze and smoke - and with the light that is refracted in these suspended particles. More so than in his previous works, the harbor pictures seem to be shrouded in a wet, glowing wall of clouds.

Jakobus Durstewitz

If we immerse ourselves in Durstewitz's pictures, we find ourselves in industrialized transit locations such as the port of Hamburg. Reflecting water, distance and silence motivate us to contemplatively observe the circumstances. Durstewitz states: "I absorb and abstract what I see in suppressed nature".   In doing so, he alludes to industrialization, which in fact triggered a transformation of the social, economic and political fabric and continually represses nature. The industrial landscapes in his paintings reflect this symbolically but by no means in a moralizing way. The black-and-white photographs of his father, who worked at a shipyard, serve as a model. In addition, the artist also searches for motifs himself at the harbor, "preferably in old, somewhat run-down corners," says Durstewitz. As a silent observer, he is interested in filtering basic architectural forms in his pictures. Ships, cranes, and bridges as a form.   Jakobus Durstewitz was born in 1969 in Emden and has lived in Hamburg since the 1990s, where he influenced the musical scene of the "Hamburger Schule", at that time still known as Jakobus Siebels. In this environment he founded the band JaKönigJa together with his wife Ebba Durstewitz in 1994 and later founded the electro duo "Die Vögel" (The Birds) alongside Mense Reents. Today Durstewitz lives in the Lüneburger Heide.
