Monument Forms by Louis Jobst

About

Monument Forms are a series of paintings by Louis Jobst experimenting with form and color. Focusing on the composition of two silhouettes appearing to hang or balance amongst an abstract landscape. The forms appear monumental and heavy, yet quick brush strokes give the lines and markings energy and movement. The forms pay reference to architectural components such as archways, openings and structures. The medium used is acrylic paint and Japanese ink on cartridge paper.

About The Maker

View Profile
Louis Jobst's award winning designs are inspired by both functional and sculptural form. The choice of material is an important one; by connecting with ‘a material’s rawness’, he often finds the process of making is as significant as the end product. Jobst is interested in the juxtaposition between robust materials and rigorous processing, thus creating an unconventional and blemished effect. This in contrast reveals the elegance and delicacy of the components. Through designing and making sculptural lamps and furniture, Jobst transforms large-scale industrial processes into small-scale batch produced products. His passion for architectural forms such as arches, columns and monoliths are expressed in this work. These are presented through a contrasting palette of materials, textures and colours, resulting in his unique style. Jobst first trained as an architect, working for practices such as Carmody Groarke, where he gained an interest in high quality construction materials and simple geometric forms. In 2013 he began working for the renowned Mike Smith Studio, collaborating on major art fabrication projects both in the UK and abroad. This has provided Jobst with skills and experience working with a vast range of materials and across a broad range of scales.
