Within the new series, I continue my deliberation on the topic of perception and the realm of opportunities that can be created. The term “Interferences” describes my new works of which consist of a photographic composition and multiple panels comprised of casting resin featuring manually embossed imprints that are mounted in front of it.
Superimposition, permeation and oscillation of different layers lead to visual interferences and prismatic effects. The space that is located between the observer and the actual image serves as a medium that itself becomes part of the image and is modeled and sculpted. Through interferences, my new works manifest the notion of sight as a form of exploring the relation between what can and cannot be seen.
Kuettinger studied architecture with a main focus on conceptual urbanism at the Technical University of Munich, graduating with a degree as an architect in 1999. Since then, Georg has been focusing on photography. As a self taught artist, 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. The artist has shown in a wealth of solo and group exhibitions, and his art represented at art fairs in Europe, Asia and Canada. The Kostuik Gallery has been representing Georg Kuettinger since 2015.
