GERMANY, 1966

Jorn Ebner’s work reflects his fascination with the crossover between art, music and literature, from Bruegel to William Burroughs, Kerouac to Lennon. Recent drawings emerged from his interest in the nineteenth century French caricaturist JJ Grandville, whose anthropomorphic drawings of animals presented as human characters were influential on later artists such as the surrealists. As an act of homage, the artist started to draw his own versions of these hybrid figures onto the pages cut from an old German paperback. Ebner’s figures and scenes appear to be emerging from or dissolving into his networks of frenzied marks and elusive colour.
