Through the JUMAP series Gaspar Willmann explores, in his own words, a “mediatic” type of painting, aware of its own issues of production and distribution.
The exuberant images that the artist stages provoke a feeling of "déjà vu" and of commonplaces that speak to everyone, so much so that these still lifes and landscapes belong (by fatality, determination, etc.) to a common history: that of art and visual communication.
However, beyond this limit, intimacy returns at a gallop, for example in the meticulous choice of images which are taken from the artist's personal image banks, his daily life, and the inherent melancholy of "too much".
