I began working on this theme while I was doing a lot of painting en plein air. I found that the views I witnessed while in the car was more compelling and so I began to play with the idea of using the windshield as framework for painting. I love the range of color and light you can find while driving and the underlying feeling of movement while looking out into the world. Inside the car I feel untethered from the physical world like anything is possible.  Coming to a complete stop 2008 (oil…

Studio Visit: Gregory Thielker’s Paintings of Roads Through Rainy Car Windows

Some months ago I was interviewed by On Landscape a UK online photo magazine I find very informative and often very inspiring too. In the interview I told them a little about the Denmark series so here is an excerpt of it (issue 125):  We had been there once before in May 2014. I really love that place the wide sand dunes and beaches along the coast and the wonderful light you often get there. I like open and vast landscapes in general rough places and above all I love being by the sea. I…

My physical presence and contact with my materials of choice form the vital process required to draw an impression a self-portrait.Basic photograms soon developed into Chemigrams; painting photographic chemicals onto my skin and making contact with light sensitive paper was a messy way of working but the abstract and painterly results successful.The work advanced further when I forged masks of the surface of my skin from various areas of my body. Exposing through these masks in a…

From the discovery of the DSM on everything evolved in an interesting manner. At the time I was studying the DSM I had visions. The huge amount of images I collected came together in groups based on the way they appeared: the images containing lines came together with other images containing lines the images containing waves came together with other images containing waves and so on. Later on I created labels based on the way the group of images looked like. Naturally I added corresponding…

Exquisite Errors by Barry van der Rijt (4/4)

The project Surveillance presented here consist of the photographs of the solitary walking yards and prison cell door spy holes in former KGB prisons in different cities of Lithuania and Latvia. The series shows how images can become evidence of an event and create a paradoxical perception.  Surveillance by Valentyn Odnoviun(1/4)

I take inspiration from my love for nature and the outdoors and from trying to lead a mindful life. I meditate every morning for about 15 minutes attempting to carry that calm and observant mind-set with me through my day. Most of my pictures are inspired by the places and landscapes that form the backdrop to my life. I try to find beauty in the ordinary or beyond the obvious and I like revisiting places with my camera and observing the constant change in everything.  I like both the big…

Denmark 2015 by Julia Fuchs

I have been asked to describe the way I work but as much as I would like to do that I think I cant give you a precise account of my approach. Honestly Im not sure how I do it or why I do it the image-making I mean. This is also one of the reasons why I put off writing this text for months.  Ramin the kind guy from AN has been very patient with me. He kindly contacted me some time in summer and I was really chuffed and told him Id send him my images and the narratives to go with them soon I…

Denmark 2015 by Julia Fuchs

A few years ago I was sitting at my computer watching a digital movie. The film played and played and all of a sudden in a split second the image faltered. An error occurred. Then the playback continued. That error fascinated me. What had I just seen? I successfully started looking for ways to reproduce and capture this error. Thus I got the chance and the time to quietly observe this deviation. What I saw made my heart beat faster. I saw lines and colors in a color combination I couldnt…

Exquisite Errors by Barry van der Rijt (2/4)

For me a photograph is more a field that is open for interpretation than a representation. Therefore it can evoke a paradox in our perception of what it is trying to convey. If we consider this interplay as a liberation from rigid ideologies  permitting the creation of something new  it can broaden our perception and create and open up new horizons through its ability to overtake our reality.
