organism of oil and pigment R.: Being alone was never a problem! Being with someone was. The puzzling feeling of participating in yet another conversation, while simultaneously reflecting on identifying and liberating the algorithm inside - producing maniacally letters of sense - excavating rare but not too exotic words from the in-depth of our short term-memory to ultimately populate phrases full of short but smart answers., 2021

About Florian Meisenberg
Florian Meisenberg’s paintings are fluid and fragile, rendered in both pastel and dense, dark colours. Meisenberg’s compositions are cartoonish and cluttered, encompassing scattered objects like hats, ice cream cones and body parts, as well as text scrawled in paint. Canvases are often unorthodox shapes, presented on flagpoles or hanging off the wall. The artist is concerned with the 21st century condition: artificiality, digital apprehension and human alienation. The digital incurs onto the canvas, with large computer cursors painted in the middle of Meisenberg’s canvases, presenting an arresting collision of new and old, digital and analogue technologies. The artist’s practice also incorporates video, sound, performance and writing. Written by Goldsmiths CCA
