About Jay Rechsteiner

Jay Rechsteiner is a Swiss multi-disciplinary artist who is today based between London and Margate, UK. Working with painting, photography, video and performance, his works often tackle anarchic and political themes in a frank and sometimes startling manner, drawing attention to the absurdness of his subjects.

The Storyteller

Three integral aspects of Rechsteiner’s work are process, zeitgeist and peripatetics, and most of his artistic production can be applied to one of these categories. It is important for him that his works reflect the journey that they have made. Through a constant critical analysis of his work, he often revisits pieces, allowing them to take new directions. The themes and subject matters of his work are explicitly relevant to the culture of today, and though his viewers may not be of the same opinion, his works are active conversations, undoubtedly inciting reaction and response.
