About the artist

"I'm fascinated by light and texture"

His paintings have basically two processes in their creation, the creation of a deeper coloured surface and a pattern made of water drops on a glass above, in which the light of the background refracts.

Photography is the possibility to conserve the situation and thus to present it. The print on photographic paper becomes the final situation in a later phase by cutting and rearranging the parts.

Not color, but light. Structure instead of composition. Reduction to elementary things like light and rhythm.

The two concepts of refraction and structure play a key role for Jacobi and, according to his aesthetics, are the means by which the effect transcends the actual design.
