Cristobal – solo show
LOCATION: PULSE MIAMI, Booth S216, Indian Beach Park, 4601 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33140/USA
WHITECONCEPTS Gallery is participating for the first time in PULSE Miami art fair. We are delighted to present Cristobal’s latest work series: an encounter with photographic art displaying proof of his talent and the expertise of his photographic techniques. The artist’s reverence for taking manual shots and his curiosity transport us, the viewers, into a world of sensuality and striking expressionism.
Cristobal has received well-deserved acknowledgment for his work as a photographer. This outstanding German artist, based in South Africa, has taken his place in the contemporary photography art scene – this is largely thanks to the intriguing and challenging techniques used in his almost abstract landscapes and cityscapes. Following his debut in Paris, France he had worked on numerous fashion editorials in Paris, London and New York. The first decade of his artistic career he spent exploring the possibilities of conceptual visual storytelling with multifaceted imagery. This body of his work has been showcased in various international exhibitions and publications, documented in the book Trouble in Paradise, published by Seltman in Berlin. In 2015 he decided to concentrate on exploring the possibilities of abstract photography, which has since become the center of his focus. In this new body of work he simply uses the camera as an optical instrument which allows him to create abstract expressions of what he feels is present.
