Sundy is thrilled to show new paintings and drawings by German artist Jannis Marwitz.
Marwitz’ works are densely populated by mythological creatures, droll characters and everyday objects. Some of these characters and objects keep reappearing in and outside of works, interconnecting different levels of narration with each other, like trap doors from fantasy into reality or the other way around. What is represented seems as absurd as it is concrete, often absurd in its concreteness and sometimes beautiful in its banality – weaving together strands of narration which make for infinite different versions of the human comedy.
