Art Karlsruhe 2011


At the fair art Karlsruhe WHITECONCEPTS shows a fine selection of the oeuvre by German artist Andre Wagner (*1980).

Romantic inclined and picturesque in their effect atmospheric landscape photographs are confronted with impressive architectural works, some of them are presented for the first time at the fair. Wagner succeeds in a remarkable way of perceiving internal and external phenomena of a situation.

With virtuoso camera technology he produces authentic images that are not digitally manipulated. Wagner often summarizes single works into series. The moment depicted is deliberately loaded with content that rise above the purely aesthetic result. This effect is further enhanced when Wagner is working with very long exposure times and lets the material also speak.

Exhibitions and study tours have taken the young emerging artist so far thoughout Europe, to China, New Zealand and the USA.
