ELGER ESSER : New Works
14 March - 30 May 2015
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.
