The landscapes and scenes of everday chores in Jonah Gebka's latest paintings are borrowed from ads and stock-photography. By restaging these found images, working in series and repetitions the artist tries to underscore the relationship of images among each other. Gebka understands painting as an act of differentiation and exhibiting as a chance to establish new relations among images – but also with the viewer.
The realized paintings enter the exhibition space in pairs or groups hinting towards ideas of seriality and similarity, image-production and the comparative gaze.
Gebka's work has previously been shown in several art institutions and galleries in Germany and abroad such as the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung München in der Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich; GIG, Munich; Display Gallery, London and Helsinki Academy of Fine Arts, Finland.
