In his alienating universe, Paul Nassenstein (Amsterdam 1966) defies the laws of gravity and human measure. Colossal spaces, accurately laid out by a sophisticated use of colour, light, shadow and perspective distortions, appear to be populated by a tiny and enigmatic human and animal figures on closer inspection. They feature in an absurdist, contemporary "stage of the world," in which impending mischief never seems far away. Yet in his associative performances fatalism is always sworn with humour. And despite their narrative character, imaginative and fabulous paintings and drawings always transcend the purely anecdotal.
Nassenstein's work ranges from small-format drawings – often no larger than a postcard – to canvases of 2 by 3 metres. In the past, in order to put his representations into perspective or to give an extra charge of meaning, he used materials such as wood, clay, iron wire and fabric. In his current work, Nassenstein again prefers paint "to depict painting and only to use various materials if the painting really asks for it".
