  • Ingo Mittelstaedt is an interesting reviver of abstract expressionism in photography
Full Description

The German artist Ingo Mittelstaedt explores in his work the possibilities of using photography as means in creating light-art. Models made from paper or foil, found materials and everyday objects are the pieces of his carefully composed arrangements. These installations condense into abstract, deceptive images with two and three-dimensional elements. This new book presents two of Mittelsteadt’s most recent series. In Chromas, the use of colour is a key element. The adoption of theories and concepts from chromatics and the theory of colours and refers to classical modernist painting and its use of colour, space and line. By contrast, the black and white images of Anonymus make the depicted objects appear to hover in a non-space. Specks of dust orbit finds like satellites of faraway stars. Closeness and three-dimensionality of the objects stand against intangibility of space. Text in English and German.
