hans koesters is an artist and designer based in los angeles. his work involves drawings and paintings that act as artifacts of conceptual and perceptual ideas situated between art and architecture. his work has been exhibited in los angeles, st. louis, cincinnati, louisville, lexington, and seoul. these pieces explore the layering of figural relationships, implied objects and trimmed surfaces through tension and disequilibrium. the combination of ink and graphite seeks to emphasize volumetric associations, weight, and gesture using precarious compositions and deviations between multiple systems.
