Florian Meisenberg was born 1980 in Berlin. After graduating his studies at Peter Doig’s masterclass at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in 2010 he moved to New York, where he now lives and works.
Florian Meisenberg's practice experiments with the possibilities of the depicted image. Much of his work reflects self-consciously upon both the process of painting and the specific boundaries of the medium. His investigations have led him to paint both figuratively as well as abstractly, playing with issues of scale that create complex installations (or environments), and explore the permutations of different materials (whether those used for support or types of paint or digital media), all in the service of expanding the potential of non-verbal communication. These are works that in their constant awareness of the constructed nature of visual experience nevertheless present to viewers images containing the expressive power of an unmediated here and now.
