Grigori Dor came in 1990 from Ulan - Ude, Russia to Berlin after being granted a DAAD-stiped. Aside from a stay in New York City in 1997 he has been living and working in Berlin ever since.

About

The painting process of Grigori Dor begins with collages. His sources are the printed papers that surround us: photographs, reproductions in glossy magazines, snippets of pictures and rests of informations from billboards. He arranges them in collage formations as vibrant colli- sions of found images. Reuse and appropriation of images are important elements in his work.
By transforming images and lifting them out of existing contexts, by re-arranging, taking of photos and finally the transfer to the canvas through the process of painting, he creates new contexts as well as new realities and investigates the collective visual memory.

Grigori Dor came in 1990 from Ulan - Ude, Russia to Berlin after having been granted a DAAD-stipend. His artworks have been shown nationally and internationally in galleries on art fairs and museums and are held in several private and public collections.

Grigori Dor kam bereits 1990 im Rahmen eines DAAD-Stipendiums aus Sibirien nach Berlin. Seine Gemälde wurden national und international in Galerien, Kunstmessen und Museen gezeigt und sind in verschiedenen privaten und öffentlichen Sammlungen vertreten.

Der Prozess der Malerei von Grigori Dor beginnt mit Collagieren. Seine Quellen sind bedrucktes Papier, das uns umgibt: Fotografien aus Printmedien, Abbildungen in Hochglanzmagazinen, Bilderschnipsel und Informationsreste von den Werbetafeln. Er arrangiert sie in Collagenformationen zu lebendigen Kollisionen der gefundenen Abbildungen. Wiederverwendung und Aneignung der Bilder sind wichtige Elemente in seiner Arbeit.
Durch Transformation von Bildern und deren Isolierung aus bestehenden Zusammenhängen, durch das Neukombinieren, Abfotografieren und das schließliche Übertragen auf die Leinwand durch Malerei erschafft er neue Kontexte und Realitäten und untersucht das kollektive Bildgedächtnis.
