Electric Eyes is Jens Einhorn's second solo exhibition and first at Luce Gallery in Turin. Having studied photography in Leipzig and also sculpture and newmedia with Astrid Klein, he enrolled in a master class with TalR at Düsseldorf Academy in order to concentrate more on painting. The structured system of tiny picture elements lends them the air of digital-seeming, abstract painting. There is a special quality within the works reminding on urban graffiti fragments, large scaled advertisement prints and painterly gestures only using mesh, glue and raw pigments on canvas. Music was to play an important role as an early means of expression. Electronic Music is totes related to his artworks. Like musicalbeats, the image's pixel-like fragments are working their way through a delicate haze permeated by coloured light. Youth Culture and present an important backdrop for his pictures, like fleeting audiovisual impressions. It has been a sociocritical means of expression, processing dystopian visions of the future tapping into new technology.
