MANIPULATING PHOTOGRAPHY


Substract - 38 III by Thomas Ruff


Thomas Ruff’s recent show of large color abstractions and fussily appropriate vintage negatives was a strange climax to the artist’s concurrent European retrospective and the publication of Nudes, his digitally blurred images of Internet pornography paired with text by the French enfant terrible novelist of the moment, Michel Houellebecq. The series Substratum offered an acid-tinged thought-provoking experiment in technology and art, photography and abstraction, while the less-inspired Machines series offered a glimpse of war and technology that might be nightmarish if it wasn’t so boring.

This work by Ruff explores photography and is also very aesthetically pleasing!! Something to look into for my own work???
