Jennifer Braun – Irgendwo

Jennifer Braun  - Irgendwo

“Already in the painting of the 17th Century it was common to cover paintings by a curtain. This served both, a protection against dust and light and an appeal to the viewer to rediscover the image in prevention of getting tired of it.
In my series ‘Irgendwo’ (anywhere) these issues are addressed. SP the portrayed are covered, concealed and hidden by the curtain.” – Jennifer Braun about ‘Irgendwo’

Friday Quote: Trine Søndergaard

Posted by (PF) at 7:00 ...

I have been investigating portraiture in my work for some time: interrogating what constitutes an image and confronting the myth that the portrait can reveal personality – or capture ‘the soul’.

In the traditional portrait the subject often meets the gaze of the viewer. In most of the images in (my series) ‘Strude’ this meeting is doubly blocked: by the mask and by the averted face of the sitter.

I’m interested in what lies beyond the direct gaze, in what happens when we can’t look people in the eye. My focus is the introversion and mental space that lies beyond the image.

Maria Sturm – East=West

Posted by (PF) at 7:00 ...

Maria Sturm - East - West

“This work focuses on young Vietnamese, who, although not part of a genuine ‘youth movement’, belong to a small group of youth who lead lives that are very different from those of the mainstream Vietnamese (…)

The series is called “EAST=WEST“. The title underlines the outward similarity with Western youth, but also emphasizes the different path by which the subjects have acquired the Western outlook, in opposition to both their traditional Vietnamese values and to the values of Communist propaganda.” – Maria Sturm
