Christiane Feser graduated in 2006 from the Hochschule für Gestaltung, Offenbach. Currently she lives and works in Frankfurt. Trained as an artist focussing on photography as a medium, Feser’s strength lies in her command of light and shadow. After creating compositions out of folded paper, she uses a variety of light sources to add specific shadows to the folded forms which go through another stage of being photographed. The resulting print is then cut up and folded, and at times pins are meticulously placed or thread is woven into the composition, resulting in re-sculpted dizzying networks of geometric landscapes and panoramas.
About the artist
Born 1977 in Würzburg, Germany
Lives and works in Frankfurt am Main, Germany
Her work has been included in exhibitions at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles and Guggenheim Museum, New York to name a few. As the two-dimensional pictorial spaces of her images meet the transformed layers of three-dimensionality, viewers find themselves in a vibrant and dynamic structure of new possibilities. Here, within the multi-layered cast shadows, her hybrid works allow for a reexamination of the meanings of images and materiality.
