Georg Kuettinger

German based photography artist, Kuettinger’s debut photographic series Landscape: Remixed is an examination of perception, horizons and a density of space and time, assembled to present stories of landscapes. Single photographic images are stretched, shifted and compressed into one picture frame to create the simultaneous image of a scene.

The artist’s intent is to have each single shot of a different point of view be given a new context within the structure of the image – creating, not deceptions, but possibilities of the landscapes they are based on. Concentrating on images of land as a result of human interactions, the concept and terms of Landscapes: Remixed is similar to a song remix by a DJ. The remix is a visual re editing of the rhythm and shape of the motif, as well as the changing of the time tracking the main aspect of a designed landscape to be elaborated as the concept or idea of the structure of the image. This “customized” construction is created analogously to the selective perception of the observer, thus impressing a memory of the landscape as voyage. The resulting impression is neither from a dream perspective nor a viewpoint one can understand and accept as real. Küttinger’s art form then, becomes abstracted panoramas of dynamism and contemplation.

Kuettinger studied architecture with a main focus on conceptual urbanism at the Technical University of Munich. He received his degree as an architect in 1999. Georg has been working as a self-taught photography artist since then. His fascination for photography started when he won his first camera at the age of 9 – in a drawing competition on the subject of woods and snakes. A highlight of his career was being selected from artists across Western Europe to have his work featured in a solo booth as a ‘promising emerging artist’ at KIAF art fair Seoul 2008.

Küttinger has shown in a wealth of solo and group exhibitions, as well as being represented at art fairs in Europe, Asia and Canada. The Kostuik Gallery has been representing Georg since 2015.

  • Georg Kuettinger – landscapes | Remixed Press Release – Download PDF

German based photography artist, Kuettinger’s debut. Landscape has always offered artists immense potential onto which they could project ideas because Nature offers endless creative freedom. Moving away from pure documentation of land and water scenes, Kuettinger’s images are rather a multitude of different photographs the artist has taken to remix and reform into his own renditions of the mood and feel of the locations he has experienced. Images from the hillsides of  Turkey and Greece, mountain ranges in  Switzerland, the hypnotic flats of Spain and The Netherlands, and Kuettinger’s newest  images in North America of the majestic Niagara Falls, Canada and the impressionistic vistas of New Mexico, USA.

The term landscape is a cultural influenced construct – a term that has evolved in our modern times as a result of human interaction – ski tracks on a bare mountain or divided fields used for cultivation.. Kuettinger plays with what the observer understands as identifiable images and expected experiences of certain areas of the world. Through the voyage of one’s eye in Kuettinger’s rhythmic compositions and clever color combinations, one feels that the depictions are either real or some distant memory.
