Moritz Jaeger

Moritz Jaeger, painter, born 1983 in Switzerland. Master of Arts, University of Zurich. He works predominantly with oil colors on canvas. In his current work, he uses different layers overlapping in one painting. For example, geometric patterns or city structures are imposed on landscapes or portraits. The basic motif is painted in realistic style, but through the imposition of another pattern the motif becomes abstracted in style and meaning. One layer reinforces, distorts, or modifies the perspective on the other layer and vice versa. The possible ways of looking at the paintings are multiplied.
