A new contemporary photography serie. Virtual landscapes born out of Rep's abstract paintings
The paintings of Rep Ringel are large, raw, unpolished, executed in earthy tones and metallic paint, often provided with 24K gold and always inspired by music. The process how the paintings are made is special. Painted in many layers, intertwined by horizontal and vertical line structures. The works are named after the source of inspiration; the artist or the relevant track on which the painting was made.
For his new ‘SILENCE’ serie, all paintings have all been photographed with a special technique, creating completely new images. By focusing on a small detail from the large work, there is an alienation, but at the same time a recognition. These photos can be seen as endless mysterious landscapes in which you can dream away.
Many photos, I call them ‘remixes’, have been made of more than a hundred paintings. A wide selection of these has been compiled and bundled in a very luxurious book. Images can be selected from this portfolio to be reproduced in a limited and numbered format. Printed on archival paper and glued between Ultra HD acrylic (museum glass) and dibond gives the artpieces a great intensity of the glossy plexiglass, but without reflections! On the backside a suspension construction for easy hanging.
Many sizes are possible for example from 30x30cm to 150x250cm. There is also the possibility to order a number of matching photos as a serie. These photos will form a unique new work of art in their entirety.
