thomas kellner: kontaktbogenbilderon now through to february 17th, 2013kunstverein bad nauheim, germany

 

german artist thomas kellner tests and verifies the powerfully iconic nature of renowned landmarks through distinctive mosaic-like compositions. currently showing at the kunstverein bad nauheim, germany through to the 17th january, 2013 is a selection of kellner’s most important works,depicting such monuments as the great wall of china, la sagrada familia and the golden gate bridge in san francisco. through the medium of photography,kellner creates a kaleidoscopic visual play on renowned buildings and structures by taking a series of pictures that, once assembled, recreates theoriginal scene in a playfully distorted manner.  the work illustrates the well-known subjects in a step-by-step and layer-by-layer approach, producing a de-constructed image that tricks the collective human processes of visual perception.

  • Thank you for posting my work.
    a) its most probably the first time an artist creates such an Ouvres
    b) it still needs to be discussed whether its collage or montage, or something different
    c) its shot in single frames on film

  • “producing a de-constructed image that tricks the collective human processes of visual perception”

    This would be true if it were

    a) the first time such a method of montage had ever been employed

    b) a new innovative way of constructing the main image using montage methods.

    This isn’t innovative, nor is it striking. It would have been more interesting to take individual snapshots from the main composition I feel.
