About the product

Jonny Niesche’s fascination with colors, mirrors and glitter began back in his childhood in the early 1980s when he and his mother visited the cosmetics section of a department store in Sydney. In the geometrically abstract works by the Australian artist created from 2013 to 2018 and documented in this publication, the aesthetic aspect of the materials used plays a major role. Niesche works with flat, polished, mirrored surfaces, welded steel fittings, fabrics in soft pastel tones, and creates meditative image-objects in which sculptural and pictorial tendencies are combined. In his works based on color and light, the artist experiments with processes of visual perception. Through the glittering and mirroring surfaces, the works involve the viewer — and in this regard Niesche’s objects and installations are reminiscent of American Minimal Art and artists such as Larry Bell, Donald Judd and John McCracken. Furthermore, Niesche’s artistic production is rich in references to the Glam Rock of the 1970s, most notably David Bowie or Debbie Harry.
