Andreas Claussen (1988) is a German artist. His works show a world that moves and changes, that is disturbed and unpredictable and therefore somehow much more beautiful.
He crawls through the web and collects a wide range of images, which he cuts, changes and finally assembles into digital collages. These compositions range from natural looking landscapes or obviously constructed scenes and form the basis of his oil paintings.
These come to life with a rich spectrum of mark making: Thin and impasto, broken and scarped. His scenes are carefully rendered in one area, abstracted or unfinished in another. Thus he develops clear focal points and at the same time gives us enough space to fill the undefined areas with our own experiences, assumptions and questions.
Today Andreas Claussen works in his studio in Hanover, Germany, and has sold and exhibited his art across Europe and the USA.
