Nathaniel Axel opens at Rodolphe Janssen Gallery this evening

Nathaniel Axel (1984) creates works that seem to be based on other works, often in layered illustrations or which have the quality of superimposition of images. His compositions suggest a link with Japanese tradition, remade into modern symbolisms with bold colours. The American born artist often works with collages, vacuumed plastic, ink and linen, or etchings to concoct unusual visuals with a sense of fragmentation.
