M. A. Russ (Germany / USA, *1945), J. J. Dittloff (Germany / Poland, *1951), W. Quilliam (Australia, * 1963)
The exhibition presents works by three artists who use photography in their artistic creativity in very different ways as a basic technique. For the first time works by these artists can be seen in context of a joint exhibition.
Michael A. Russ
New York, Paris, Los Angeles, Hamburg, Munich and Berlin are the most important stations of Russ's creative input while developing his distinctive form of expressionism. More than four decades working in the field of photography and film are the basis for his mastery of art.
Johannes J. Dittloff
“Things that lurk unseen beneath the surface appeal to Dittloff. He wants to convey moods, instead of trying to be recognizable. He wants to take the viewer on a journey through his subjective imagery. In this sense, he can be best described as modern photographic impressionist. “My feelings shall be converted into an aesthetic experience and perfected with other media,” he says.” - Prof. Bernhard Schwichtenberg
“Wayne Quilliam unquestionably is one of Australia's leading Indigenous artists. His exhibition Sorry - more than a word in the Australian capital Canberra attracted more than 200.000 visitors. Making use of a unique metaphorical imagery, Wayne Quilliam skilfully manages to convey the deeply rooted spirituality that pervades Indigenous Australian art and culture.” - Peter Tesch, Australian Ambassador to Germany
