Albert Janzen

Albert Janzen won the Luxembourg Art Prize 2015. Alongside studying Philosophy and Mathematics in Berlin, London and Amsterdam, he has followed his artistic path autonomously.

In his works he examines lines as a basic means to perceive our environment. Every recognition of visual structures depends upon a recognition of lines; this ultimate simplicity provides its independent aesthetics. In Janzen’s drawings lines do not represent an idea, rather just themselves: the line is an independent entity.
