Jan Kölling at the MOCA in New York.
Sharing the Paradox of Not Having a Vision
These artworks by the distinguished Dutch digital artist Jan Kölling stand out through intensifying the "Mondaine Object." For this purpose the artist creates two-dimensional digital images using his own photographs, self-developed software, and unique combinations and handling of existing software tools.
He creates an intense experience of the everyday reality by bending it towards a poetic and philosophical atmosphere. Besides that, he's not afraid to experiment on an abstract level with colour and structure to create images which stand out by their mesmerising presence in the "space" where they are hung.
Sören Kierkegaard: "I'd rather be an apostle than a genius".
A one-man exhibit of Kölling's art will be held at the Museum of Computer Art in Brooklyn NY, June 1 - 18, 2010.
