A new series

Portraits

Last year I made some portraits of a colleague who wanted to move out his appartment. His room was already almost empty, so the blank wall would be enough as a background. After the pictures were taken I planned to leave a lot of space to the spectator so everyone could come up with his or her own idea’s on the mood or thoughts of the portrayed man. Later I was playing with different sentences one could actually move so that this would show how it’s in the eye of the beholder (hence the title) how you perceive an image. However I did not find suitable sentences and so the pictures stayed nameless. The sentences somehow brought me to pop art because I imagined them in balloons surrounding the man. This is how Andy Warhol entered my arena. I decided to use quotes of him, playing with his artistic way to see things. In my opinion this works very well. If you are curious: have a look at the whole set: Eye of the beholder.
