Lois Renner, "Kenzo", 2005, c-print/diasec, 180 x 225 cm
22. October - 3. December 2005
Opening reception: 22. October, 6 - 10 pm
Kuckei + Kuckei is happy to present new work by Lois Renner at the gallery. You are cordially invited.
Lois Renner has taken the step into digitality. His pictures of interiors are known for their precise composition as well as their ironic narration. Usually they show his studio, but really his own interior, the artist¹s inner life. The painter/sculptor/installation artist/architect/photographer arranges all the dimensions of rooms and objects and then takes them into the medium of the surface, photography, finally producing just one print, in the quality and dimensions of a panel painting.(...)
(...)"I use photography like a flashlight with which I illuminate my own inner life. Painting arises from what I have found during this search," the artist describes his working method.(...)
(...)Levels of reality seem to blur although one cannot speak of reality in either photography or painting. Painterly gesture and photographic naturalism overlap, everything is painting, everything photography at the same time. A photograph from the studio becomes the basis for a painting, which itself becomes the subject of a photograph, which in turn is processed in painterly fashion on the computer. The end product is a photograph? A painting? With Lois Renner, it is a picture.
