Jonas Grubelnik works in layers. The materials he superimposes distance themselves from the classical means of painting. The optical properties, materiality, form and color, are rethought. They tell their own story and integrate in themselves temporal and spatial sensation. In Grubelnik's works, substances meet layer by layer. They are often preceded by extensive material studies - investigation of chemical properties or cultural attributions and analogies. Conversation arises through combinations and cognitive association in the viewer. The individual works do not want to be categorized, whether painting, object or installation, does not matter to them. In particular, they want to be viewed from the side. The usual view, the practiced art encounter, is broken.
