Bronze 2019 Fine Art / Nudes
Even when we perfunctorily see a few signs and signals of a given subject our brain is used to automatically ‘autocomplete’ and acknowledge the subject it seems to be. What happens, when we hide the needed amount of signs and signals?
In my body of work “Surface” I try to pursue this idea on the nude female body. Usually it draws first and foremost sexual attraction, now the experiment of hiding and abstracting changes the focus on atmosphere and let result an aura of mysticism. Instead of “autocompletion” the images encourage guessing and imagination, far beyond the usual restricted focus.
Andreas Kremer, living in Cologne/Germany, began his artistic path after he had worked successfully in business for many years. Never losing touch with photography during the years, 2014 he changed his focus completely to photography as visual art, and hasn’t put down his camera since. In 2019 his first photobook TENSION was published by KERBER Verlag and awarded gold a short time later.
In his current project “The Last Resort” from 2021, he is using the collage technique in a modern, digital form, following the tradition of using collages to point out social or political grievances.
