Photographic collages of Jorg Karg
Gold in Fine Art/Collage
The intention behind my digital photo collages is that the beholder feels addressed immediately, without any further explanation. Therefore I use present-day visual language and techniques to combine it with long established, fundamental rules of painting and drawing. Our subjective perception is shaped by so many instant influences these days. Modern media affects us immensely, but so does almost forgotten ideas about shapes, colors and expressions of past days. Everything builds on one another and is subconsciously present all the time and can be used to create an unexpected experience.
Born 1982, raised and currently living in Germany with an unbridled obsession for pictures.Jorg Karg has been focusing on digital collages for around twelve years now. Before discovering this fascinating for photography, he obsessively painted and drew, which is big influence in his current photographic practice. Jorg Karg was nominated for The BLOOOM Award 2016 (Art.Fair Cologne) and was shortlisted for the Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize 2017. Since then he exhibited in the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain and Sweden.
