Georg Kuettinger

Georg Kuettinger

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.

Read More ...

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.

David Burdeny

Vancouver BC-based photography artist, David Burdeny has exhibited with the Jennifer Kostuik Gallery since 2001, showcasing his images from the world over, including Japan, Antarctica, Kenya, Brazil, China, Burma, France, Italy, Canada and the USA. Known for his finely composed photographs, Burdeny has explored a variegated photographic landscape ranging from minimal seascapes, ornate European interiors to abstract aerial images. Be it leaning out from a low flying helicopter, shooting from the deck of an Antarctic bound icebreaker or wading in hip-waders for an ocean tide to advance, Burdeny faithfully imbeds his own formal and minimalist signature into each and every image, further expressing a life long passion for the built environment and the camera’s interpretation of it. Burdeny’s photography takes the viewer on a visual journey through some of the world’s most iconic cities while his vast aerial photographs serve to build bridges of empathy to sensitive landscapes and ecosystems of our world in a way that is both beautiful and thought provoking.

Vancouver, Canada, based David Burdeny has exhibited with the Jennifer Kostuik Gallery since 2001, showcasing his images from the world over, including Antarctica, Iceland, Brazil, China, Burma, Cambodia, France, Italy, Canada and the USA. Known for his finely composed photographs, David Burdeny has spent the past 20 years exploring a variegated photographic Landscape ranging from minimal seascapes, ornate European interiors to abstract aerial images. Widely collected in Canada, the USA, Asia and Europe, the sheer beauty of David’s images has firmly placed him within the realm of Canada’s most sought after photo-based artists. David’s willingness to take risks, eschew dogma and continuously pursue his innate curiosity for new subjects and themes has become a signature element in his work. Be it mounting a camera beneath a self -built drone, shooting from the deck of an Antarctic bound icebreaker or waiting for an ocean tide to advance, David faithfully imbeds his own formal signature into each and every image further expressing a lifelong passion for the built environment and the camera’s interpretation of it. Distinctly David Burdeny, the photographs are rigorous yet graceful, inviting the viewer to form their own narrative as if they too were passing through space or gazing into the horizon for the very first time.

David Burdeny’s Masters in Architecture and Interior Design background combined with his upbringing in the vast Canadian prairies provides the template for his keen technical ability, enduring patience and minimalist aesthetic. Recently moving from using large format film to now the finest available digital cameras and precision optics, his images are rendered large and detailed. A Bright Future- Photographs of Russian Subways, Theaters and Palaces 2015 received an explosion of media interest, especially in the UK and Russia. Burdeny was in New York City to receive his First Place Award from IPA for Avata Metro Station, St. Petersburg, Russia in the Category of Historic Architecture, and was interviewed for the most recent articles for The Guardian UK and Wired publications amongst several others. In 2012, the Ancora Series of 2010 was exhibited at the Centre for Photographic Art, Carmel CA, Curated by Richard Gadd. Burdeny has won several gold awards in international art photography competitions, most significantly receiving International Photographer of the Year in the Nature category for Canada, revealed at the Lucie Awards Ceremony in New York City, October 2008. His first book Shorelines sold out in both the limited collector edition and trade publication.
