Hans Koesters is an artist and designer based in Los Angeles. His drawings and paintings act as artifacts of perceptual ideas in the gray area between art and architecture. His latest work explores scenes of tension and disequilibrium through the layering of figural relationships. Each scene is constructed using composite geometries and fundamental elements of Point, Line, Plane, and Volume. Through mixed media, the paintings play out relationships between a cast of psychodramatic characters represented as dynamic figures. Neutral tones set the backdrop for evolving intensity between characters, whose dialogue exists in the nuance between the drawn boundaries of each piece. The contrast between drawing and painting seeks to emphasize spirited gestures using precarious compositions and deviations from a monochromatic palette, unifying the reading of disparate figures in each scene.
