With past series of geometrical patterns in complementary and contrasting colours, Markus Jentes is a promising creative force in the resurgence of abstract-modernist style in this day and age. However, this very characteristic pushed him to explore further—beyond the predictable box of his own art into the unchartered terrain.
Recently this month, Jentes presented his latest collection of works inspired by his newfound realisations about nature and its ever-changing colours and moods. Showcasing the artist's versatility, the exhibition "Terra Colóris" is a result of the artist's departure from subject-less and scene-less abstract pieces into works influenced by expressionism and impressionism.
For most of his career, Jentes has used acrylic paint as a medium. This particular exhibition has allowed the artist to experiment with texture and colour in different variations—creating thousands of colour textures to form scenes.
