Florian Lechner's works are like cuts into reality. They reveal the interaction and interplay of the three-dimensional depth of our reality and its two-dimensional fabrications in digital space. Lechner superimposes the different levels of space and manipulates them into a singular, visually exuberant experience of simplicity, elegance and brute baroque excess.
Born in 1981, the artist Florian Lechner completed his studies in sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. He found his way via concrete art to a position that can probably be accurately described as 'contemporary baroque' through his renowned professors Hans Op de Beeck and Hermann Pitz, with whom he was a master student in 2012. Since then, the work of the successful artist has been shown in numerous exhibitions, including the museum exhibition 'Out of Office' at the Museum für Konkrete Kunst in Ingolstadt, as well as permanently in the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlung. Galerie Lachenmann Art has already shown Florian Lechner at Positions Berlin 2020, in the anniversary exhibition 'The Works' and is dedicating a major solo exhibition to him in 2021. Florian Lechner's oeuvre impresses with its clear lines, simple elegance in black and white and a straightforwardly opulent reduction. The first impression of the works is usually deceptive: what at first appears sober and neutral, Lechner subverts with subtle means. His objects in wall format know how to free themselves from the limitations of classical painting art and conquer the room. Lechner detaches the artwork from its physical existence, shifts it into the ephemeral and juggles with the viewer's perception.
