“My work consists of worrying about the paper: its smoothness, its modestness and its two-dimensions bother me” –Jan Voss

Jan Voss is a German painter best known for collaged works on canvas which incorporate rudimentary, figure-like shapes and scrawling, painted lines. He tears, crumples, and glues paper to find the image for each work rather than having a plan in mind beforehand. Voss’s work has relationships to Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, and CoBrA artists like Asger Jorn. Born on October 9, 1936 in Hamburg, Germany, the artist studied at the Munich Art Academy and moved to Paris in 1960, where he has remained ever since. Today, his works are in the collections of the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, the Museum of Fine Arts in Dunkirk, and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. Voss lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

  • Helen Cammock: I Will Keep My Soul

    Convening polyphonous voices from past and present, I Will Keep My Soul is an orchestral layering of photography, historical documents, poetry and interviews, all rooted in the social history, geography and community of New Orleans. In this prismatic artist’s book, UK-based artist Helen Cammock traverses the city, rendering her observations and encounters into reverberant texts and percipient photographic images that tender the city’s invisible histories.
