ELGER  ESSER:  New Works
14 March – 30 May 2015

Ninfa (Thyia), 2013

Ninfa (Thyia), 2013

Known for his highly formalized and uniquely rendered landscape photographs, this work from German artist Elger Esser’s 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.

Laney at 5th (Variation A), 2011

From its beginnings in experimentation by mid-19th century scientists and gentlemen of leisure, photography has been shaped by the desire to understand and explore the medium’s essential materials. Taking that spirit of invention and discovery as its point of departure, this exhibition features the work of seven artists—Matthew Brandt, Marco Breuer, John Chiara, Chris McCaw, Lisa Oppenheim, Alison Rossiter, and James Welling—who focus their investigations on the light sensitivity and chemical processing of photographic papers, challenging us to see the medium anew.
