Andre von Morisse "Tiger" from his works titled "Pink Freud And The Plesant Horizon". Now on view at ART 3 @andrevonmorisse #figurativepainting #photography #silvergelatinprint #analoguephotography #andrevonmorisse Andre Von Morisse is a conceptual painter, interested in exploring aspects of human psychology and how we interact with the world. With his work End of a New Dawn, reviewed by Jonathan Goodman in Art in America (Oct. 2005, p.180), he won the Best New Contemporary Artists Award 2005 at the Kunstnerenes Hus Museum in Oslo, Norway. End of a New Dawn explores relationship between painting and photography “reversing" the traditional roles of the two mediums by using paintings as the starting point for an elaborate and intricate photographic process. The large-scale photographs use paintings invented and made by von Morisse as the subject matter of the photographs. The paintings, in black and white, depict witty, time scrambling visions of sci-fi future stocked with technologies of the recent past. The artist photographed them, enlarging the images so that they take on a soft focus. That process seems to undermine accuracy and truth of photography. The title End of a New Dawn refers with nostalgia to the immense technological promises of the 60’s & the 70’s, before they dissipated into the ambiguities of the information age. His latest body of work "Pink Freud and the Pleasant Horizon" focuses on Sigmund Freud Theories and uses the same thought process as "End of a New Dawn".
