German Graphic Artist Matthias Jung creates realistic collages of fictional structures. Buildings sprout landscapes populated by livestock, entire homes levitate, and contrasting architectural styles are assembled in bizarrely harmonious ways.
I am always amazed at how architectural details can evoke certain associations and feelings. This is how a latticed window conveys cosiness; one might even say it is soulful. Framework is soothing, sometimes touching. Antennas have something sinister about them. They point to something outside the picture. Concrete is cold and foreign – but maybe interesting for just that reason.

The majority of pieces in Jung’s series Houses are re-assemblies of real photographs he has taken in Northeastern Germany. By exploring the parallel relationship between order and disorder, and homogeneity and diversity, his collages bait your imagination. Like a landscape from a Terry Gilliam film his creations exhibit an enchanting sense of harmony between what could be reality and what is only imagined.
