This volume gathers recent paintings by German artist Jan Davidoff (born 1976), made between 2007 and 2012. Davidoff’s electrically colorful landscapes, resembling high-contrast photographs, articulate longings for a lost paradise.

Jan Davidoff's paintings originate in his travels: quick impressions of different cultures and everyday gestures are captured in photographs which then undergo a process of re-composition and re-contextualization in paint, as Davidoff both layers and reduces the motifs to their fundaments. Storyboard contains works from the last four years.
