Wolfgang Tillmans - Process (Apple Tree) - 2012 SOLD
In the late 1980s, Wolfgang Tillmans began creating images using a monochrome laser copier, and was one of the first artists to explore how images are transmitted through different media and distribution channels. After studying in the UK, he became a trendsetting photographer in publications such as i-D and Interview. The magazine features were a way for him to work simultaneously on exhibition spaces and printed media and to challenge conventions. His emblematic images are now considered to epitomise a young generation in the 1990s, and raise questions about subcultures and gender. Since then, Tillmans’ practice has developed in several directions, moving from still-lifes, landscapes and portraits, to abstract, monumental works, and back again.
In abstract images that relate more closely to a painterly tradition, he explores photography as a self-reflecting medium. These works, which are produced in the darkroom, balance between intention and chance. Since 1995, Wolfgang Tillmans has practised an exhibition strategy based on a constant renegotiation of subjects and dimensions. By taking on the entire space, and installing his images in new contexts and constellations, he creates exhibitions that are site-specific, each one specially designed for the gallery or institution in question.
