About The Artwork

This artwork has been exhibited from April - November 2022 at Palazzo Bembo in the centre of Venice, during the Biennale. Into the Rising Light is a photographic kaleidoscope, based on my images of a contemporary hotel complex in Denmark. It portrays a densely built, dynamic place, full of rhythm, angles and reflections. This is an associative reference to my idea of Venice. In my view this city has a similar hectic atmosphere, with streets full of hidden corners and the omnipresent reflections by light and water. To match the historical context of the exhibition space, the work also subtly refers to the past. The symmetrical composition, in central perspective, is a spatial representation developed in Renaissance Italy. The color palette also makes my work a tribute to Renaissance painters such as Giotto and Girolamo Marchesi. This is a ready to hang artwork that consists of 2 vertical panels. Each panel is 100 x 200 cm (W x H; 39.4 x 78.8 inch). It is a photographic print on high quality paper behind plexiglass (Diasec) in museum quality finish. The plexiglass provides remarkable depth and brilliance to the art work. For extra stability each panel has an aluminium Dibond back panel and a hidden wall mount frame. Single edition at this size, personally signed and certified. Other Editions available:
 Large: 120 x 120 cm / 47 x 47 inches (print behind plexiglass) Small size: 45 x 45 cm / 17.7 x 17.7 inches (Diasec / print behind plexiglass or pigment print on paper)
