Jean Pierre Muller

Jean Pierre Muller has developed a process that tends to assume the relation to painting as well as integrating elements of contemporary culture that oppose it. His work, given rhythm by colour, is essentially urban.
Playing on cross-purposes, Muller endeavours to confuse visual, cultural and conceptual issues. Photography, drawing, silk screen, painting merge, gestural and mechanical interventions meet to offer a vision of the world with numerous readings, combining History of art and consumption subcultures.
And so has his work taken multiple forms, small intimate pictures or monumental paintings, volumes or triptych fences, until integrating the surrounding space (the creation of a temple to the city for the exhibition in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Saragossa, …)
His work may be born from a personal research, but he cares about its encounter with the audience.
Collaborations and confrontations with other creators play a particular part in his work’s evolution. The addition of musical interactivity to paintings offers him a way of extending the attention given to the visual image beyond the statistical two seconds granted to most museum works. And it creates from this fusion a new kind of art object - a musical painting.
