About The Artwork

Part of the series "Gardens of Wabi Sabi" Limited Edition 6 + 2 AP Printed on Hahnemühle FinArt Photo media, archival quality, incl. signed Certificate of Authenticity with edition number. We leave a white boarder for better handling. _ EXCERPT: ......... “Quietness and contemplation – I photograph the feeling which moves me when I view something”, says Helmut Rueger when he speaks about his work. And this is where the world of Wabi and Sabi meets photography. Contemplation If we follow this quiet reflection of the three Japanese women, our eyes are opened to the colour of the treetops. The autumn foliage appears unspectacularly simple – looking at simpleness. This is simplicity in its utmost form: nothingness … An incompleteness inherent within it, as reflected by the development and passage of nature. If we, as Europeans, now permit ourselves to neglect the question of the meaning of it all, and get involved in this play of colours of the leaves – if we permit ourselves – to question our comprehension of this reflection, we soon arrive at the perception of this simplicity, which comes so close to nothingness. And now one may well ask the question: which feeling do I have in this nothingness? And then we discover within ourselves, while reflecting on “contemplation”, an eye for the small details of everyday life with their private significance – essential and intimate for us. Feeling and pictorial language This is the exact moment which Helmut Rueger captures in his photography. The feeling of that particular moment in time takes on a form. Or to put it another way, to quote the American photographer Minor White (1908–1976): “Expressive photography shows a thing not only as what it is, but as what else it is.” (2)............... Dr. C. Haertl-Kasulke _ A "ready to hang" version is available.

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.
