About The Artwork

"weDrown", the new series by J. F. Novotny aka Flynn Newton. Scenario I: Human rights are universally valid and cannot be separated. Be it human dignity in general, women's rights in particular, the right to integrity, freedom of religion or freedom of the press (to name just a few examples): in many countries human rights are violated, denied, perish. Scenario II: An intact environment is essential for human survival. Climate change, however, is melting the ice in the polar regions, the sea level is rising... with devastating consequences. My series "weDrown" asks the question: What is humanity leaving behind? ... and thus sets its focus on the alarming development of basic human freedoms worldwide. Regarding my artwork „weDrown: Freedom of Press“: Around the world, the situation of press freedom, which is indispensable for liberal democracies, continues to deteriorate; violence against journalists, less diversity, increasing censorship and intimidation.

In the digital age very often the sensation of those mechanical miracles seems to disappear, in a time where "analog" film cameras retain their sometimes strange and special character while the digital design is seemingly far ahead by any means ( By adding colors - with his pop art series "COLORIMPOSSIBLE“ - J. Flynn Newton alias Jürgen F. Novotny wants to exaggerate his subjects and their messages, sometimes reducing them to absurdity, sometimes highlighting their presence. By showing these subjects „overdressed“ the such post processed photographies seem to unveil their real significance ( COLORLIMITED: How do the various colors influence our mood, what is the impact of Red, Green, Violet? And what happens when seemingly everyday objects try to camouflage themselves and begin to merge with their backgrounds? This time photographer J. F. Novotny - known for his CameraSelfies - combines colors, backgrounds and sometimes absurd items …resulting in beautiful, shouting, contemplative, minimalistic and often grotesque still lives. By capturing his painting like still lifes in different shades of a single color, photographer J. Flynn Newton (alias J. F. Novotny) coincidentally hides and exaggerates his minimalistic subjects: vases filled with unusual, almost bizarre objects which - in comparison to usual lifestyle accessories - catch the spectator's view (
