About The Artwork

Trees have incredible energy. They have built up this energy over many years. If you get involved, you can feel it. On a foggy and windy day in November, I walked a bank of a pond and saw a branch reflected in the water. Again and again gusts of wind came and destroyed the wonderful and expressive reflection of this beautiful branch. But as soon as the wind died down, the reflection reappeard. The way a ghost appears and disappears. Yes, that collage / timelapse shows exactly what I love about trees. This metaphor. The energy, the spirit is never gone. Even if it´s not visible for a short time. This is how the titel of this series came about. - Printed on archival quality paper "FineArt Velvet 270", incl. signed Certificate of Authenticity with edition number. Perfectly mounted in a wooden frame of manual production. Graphite black (RAL 9011) with acrylic glas "UV 100" as front. This Artwork is also available as: 120 x 120 cm (Limited Edition of 6 + 2 AP) If you are interested, please contact

Helmut Rüger is a German artist, living and working in the Greater Frankfurt area. First trained as a banker, in the following years he established an imports company trading with japanese art and decoration products. Over time he gradually transitioned from business into art and photography. Initially mainly documenting art and japanese garden design for editorials. While running a photostudio in the 90s he continued to travel frequently to far east. Far more than 50 journeys to Japan had a considerable influence on his view of life. Especially his perception on objects and their aesthetic presence gradually changed and he developed an understanding for Tanisaki`s motivation to write the essay on japanese aesthetics „In the praise of shadows“. When he was asked once why he engages in photography and his motivation of creating specific series he stated: "I photograph the feeling which moves me when I view something". As a quiet, introverted person he is able to watch things and scenes and absorbe their energy. To exchange his experiences and feelings with others, photography is the appropriate medium. At best an emotinal accordance araises with the viewer. Helmut Rüger`s work is held in numerous private collections internationally as well as in corporate collections.
