Jan-Ole Schiemann bases his surreal imagery on Max Fleischer’s classic 1930s cartoons, extracting fragments from the iconic drawings to create layered compositions. To create FigurA, Schiemann reversed this process by using a foundational drawing as the central composition and laying a tactile silkscreen layer on top of a digitally printed background. The final image explores dematerialization and rematerialization as it oscillates between image source and technique.
