I began working on this theme while I was doing a lot of painting en plein air. I found that the views I witnessed while in the car was more compelling and so I began to play with the idea of using the windshield as framework for painting. I love the range of color and light you can find while driving and the underlying feeling of movement while looking out into the world. Inside the car I feel untethered from the physical world like anything is possible. Coming to a complete stop 2008 (oil…

Some months ago I was interviewed by On Landscape a UK online photo magazine I find very informative and often very inspiring too. In the interview I told them a little about the Denmark series so here is an excerpt of it (issue 125): We had been there once before in May 2014. I really love that place the wide sand dunes and beaches along the coast and the wonderful light you often get there. I like open and vast landscapes in general rough places and above all I love being by the sea. I…

Denmark 2015 by Julia Fuchs

I have been asked to describe the way I work but as much as I would like to do that I think I cant give you a precise account of my approach. Honestly Im not sure how I do it or why I do it the image-making I mean. This is also one of the reasons why I put off writing this text for months. Ramin the kind guy from AN has been very patient with me. He kindly contacted me some time in summer and I was really chuffed and told him Id send him my images and the narratives to go with them soon I…

Denmark 2015 by Julia Fuchs

I take inspiration from my love for nature and the outdoors and from trying to lead a mindful life. I meditate every morning for about 15 minutes attempting to carry that calm and observant mind-set with me through my day. Most of my pictures are inspired by the places and landscapes that form the backdrop to my life. I try to find beauty in the ordinary or beyond the obvious and I like revisiting places with my camera and observing the constant change in everything. I like both the big…

The paintings from Under the unminding sky reflect my interest in the way we see and experience the world. Looking through the car windshield we can see how water abstracts the outside in dramatic and subtle ways. The normal environment that we navigate breaks down into shapes and colors through the effect of the water. A traffic light becomes a splash of red and orange and mingles with the deep greys around it. In this way these paintings are also about the spontaneous act of painting even…

I had an opportunity to take some pictures inside a shopping centre at night and then I started working on the pictures in a way that was unusual for me instead of adding I was removing. I got rid of people ads logos merchandise and writings to uncover the very construction of the place and to reveal an element of its character.

Surveillance by Valentyn Odnoviun (1/4)

The project Surveillance presented here consist of the photographs of the solitary walking yards and prison cell door spy holes in former KGB prisons in different cities of Lithuania and Latvia. The series shows how images can become evidence of an event and create a paradoxical perception. Surveillance by Valentyn Odnoviun(1/4)

I begin each painting by driving. I sometimes return to the same place over and over possibly because of the overhead shape of a bridge or overpass or because I love the arrangement of lights or signs. The photographs I take in the car (no one is willing to drive with me while I take them!) end up being collaged together to grab different shapes from different images. Then I work on each painting in the studio from 2 weeks to 6 months depending on the image. I work inch by inch across the…

My physical presence and contact with my materials of choice form the vital process required to draw an impression a self-portrait.Basic photograms soon developed into Chemigrams; painting photographic chemicals onto my skin and making contact with light sensitive paper was a messy way of working but the abstract and painterly results successful.The work advanced further when I forged masks of the surface of my skin from various areas of my body. Exposing through these masks in a…

Surveillance by Valentyn Odnoviun (3/4)

I am interested in details. A spy hole is a detail. Spy hole is a very informative object. A lens through which the warden looked at people inside of the prison cell or walking yard. It is one of the visual communicative channels which obscured the personality of a prisoner into an object of surveillance. Reminding of the everyday life of people that were on both sides of it.
