Abstract Pictures

Wolfgang Tillmans

Binding: Softcover
ISBN: 9783775740814


Publisher's Description

Apart from his seminal portraits, party images, and still lifes that gained him recognition in the nineties, Wolfgang Tillmans (*1968 in Remscheid) long ago began dealing with more abstract motifs. In the past decade he has consistently developed his approach to create totally non-representational works that examine themes such as the process of exposure and image supports. From the delicate veils of color in Blushes and Freischwimmer or the sculptural paper drops made of rolled-up photographic paper, to the colorfully compelling works of the Lighter series, the photograph itself—essentially divorced from its reproductive function—becomes the objet d’art, as the book here, designed by the artist himself, impressively demonstrates.
