ELGER ESSER: New Works
14 March - 30 May, 2015
ROSEGALLERY is pleased to announce Elger Esser: New Works. One-of-a-kind photographs from Nereide and Ninfa will be on view 14 March through 30 May, 2015.
Known for his highly formalized and uniquely rendered landscape photographs, German artist Elger Esser’s most recent work draws inspiration from mythology and romantic lore. Like much of the artist’s previous work including the acclaimed series Ansichten and Vedutas and Landscapes, the images from Ninfa and Nereide radiate with a sense of the sublime in nature.
All of the works are unique photographs printed directly onto aluminum and finished with varnish. The completed works defy classic conventions of photography and echo the 19th century pictorial postcards that have influenced Esser’s photographic practice for the past two decades.
