Presentation

Nikolaus von Wolff synthesises naturalistic landscape impressions and natural forms through the arrangement of artificial patterns. In doing so, the viewer inevitably consciously passes through the transition between an assumed pictorial identity and the grasping of the synthetic pictorial quality as his own generative process of perception. He takes travel photographs as a source for appropriative visual compositions. Adopting the artistic technique of the 'ecrire automatique' he decodes the simple photographs to re-reflect the significance of the explored environment in generative landscapes.

Nikolaus von Wolff (*1966) studied at the Hamburg University of Fine Arts and worked for many years with the media of video and photography internationally at interfaces of intercultural communication.
