About The Artwork

Vilhelm's rooms series. This image belongs to a series which was inspired by the great danish painter Vilhelm Hammershoi. His lonely, often unrecognizable female figures made a deep impression on me. The title refers to the short story by Jorge Luis Borges. “It cannot be, yet it is. The number of pages in this book is exactly infinite. No page is the first; none the last.” - Jorge Luis Borges: The Book of Sand Giclée Print on Hahnemühle Photo Rag Baryta Paper. Printed with 5cm white border. Signed Certificate of Authenticity is included.

Peter Zelei is a Hungarian visual artist who specializes in portrait, conceptual imagery, landscapes and also photo manipulations. From his use of colour and surreality, he creates a reality found only in his imagination, but with an emotion that is undeniably human. He explores the divide between darkness and light, unafraid to explore themes that others may find uncomfortable. His work evokes a connection from the viewer, a feeling of oneness of the human experience and a mystery that will leave you wondering how the story will unfold. He exposes the rawness, surreality, mysticism and yet also poetry of his surroundings. His photographs and photo manipulations are created within an immense subtleness and ease. They take the observer on a journey into the most intimate realms of the human experience. Tina Lorien (Gallerie Lorien)
