Johannes Bendzulla’s murals and pictorial objects take viewers on a journey of visual experience in a complex dynamic of revealing and exposing. His visual spaces are marked by serial motifs and intricate representations overlaid by hyperreal objects that are vying for attention with elaborately curved lines, stains, splashes, blots, hairline cracks, and textures. Real-life, everyday things are turned into forms whose surfaces have been altered by applying graphic filters, effects, and shadows. It is an approach that integrates everyday objects into the frequently perspectival grids of the visual spaces.
This book is the first comprehensive title dedicated to the artist’s oeuvre and introduces works created over the last ten years.
