  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    'Weight on their Shoulders' is a photographic collage by Jorg Karg, a German artist with an unbridled obsession for picture who has been focusing on digital collages for over a decade. He takes photographic material, rearranges it, and abstracts it, using photo-editing software, creating his own photographic material while collaborating with other photographers from all around the world. Before discovering this fascinating for photography, he obsessively painted and drew, which is big influence in his current photographic practice.

    Jorg was nominated for The Bloom Award 2016 (Art.Fair Cologne) and was shortlisted for the Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize 2017. Since then he exhibited in the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and Sweden. In 2018 and 2019 the journey went on and his works were recognized by several awards like the PX3 Paris Photo Award or the IPA International Photography Award. The range of exhibitions has also expanded to France, Spain, Hong Kong, Japan, USA and Australia.

    ”The intention behind my digital photo collages is that the beholder feels addressed immediately, without any further explanation. Therefore I use present-day visual language and techniques to combine it with long established, fundamental rules of painting and drawing. Our subjective perception is shaped by so many instant influences these days. Modern media affects us immensely, but so does almost forgotten ideas about shapes, colors and expressions of past days. Everything builds on one another and is subconsciously present all the time. All that can be used to move the viewer and create an unexpected personal experience.”
