Biography

The artist Mathias Hornung was born in 1969 and first worked as an artist, before diving into the live of a full time artist. His works are based on rectangular grids that are either printed on paper or three dimensionally on wood. Topography as well as time and space play a big role in his works, but the ultimate idea behind his works is the imminent "fall out" from the perfect, even and regular grid of life.
