About The Artwork

In Japan most trees that grow in gardens or residential areas (especially pines) are clipped and shaped. These trees embody a lot of energy and they exert an enormous charisma on viewers. I`ve always thought about how to translate the above mentioned into an image. It became this 16 part collage. It took a lot of travelling untilI I had collected the right pictures of branch structures in order to create a collage that creates this suction effect, which literally draw the viewer into the picture. Printed on archival quality paper "FineArt Velvet 270" (by Hahnemühle), perfectly mounted on AluDibond, in a wooden frame from manual production, graphite black (RAL 9011) with acrylic glas "UV 100" as front. Incl. signed Certificate of Authenticity with edition number.

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.
