Florian Meisenberg

Florian Meisenberg’s work oscillates between and regularly encompasses painting, installation and film. Meisenberg’s paintings simultaneously conjure lightness and depth; they vary greatly in density and rendering, employing multi-layered compositions that display themes of digital apprehension and abstract interiors alongside cartoonish figures and scrawling statements. His delicate, oblique films capture intrigue in the banal moments of contemporary existence.

A solo exhibition of Meisenberg's work, Out of Office, took place at the SCHIRN KUNSTHALLE in Frankfurt in 2016.
