Janina Roider (*1986) is part of a young generation of painters whose work is positioned amid a fascination for technological progress, profound knowledge of art history, and a seismographic sensibility for current events. She confidently makes use of digital tools as well as gestural, analogue brushstrokes, which are equalised on the canvas. Fiction and reality blend on both contextual and formal levels.
Make It Newer! is an ode to Günther Förg, the abstract artist whose spirit of invention she has adopted as a role model. The title is programmatic. The book’s dimensions transport the explosive force of her paintings, which collide with each other on a large scale. Featuring essays by Florian Matzner, Hans-Jörg Clement, and Johannes Ungelenk, as well as an interview with Birgit Sonna.
