Thomas Steineder

blank canvas

blank canvas is a process-oriented work which combines a sculptural setup with a painterly gesture on an analog negative. In the process of realisation, this planned coincidence is celebrated. The work tries to question the essence of the images, in reference to a real and imagined pictorial space, which merge into each other. Both parts of the image have never met, in front of the lens is still an empty canvas.

About the artist:
Steinder’s works represent an associative survey of his environment – in a multi-layered process of transformation and translation of the medium, analog photographs are created which deal with the perception of everyday spaces. Most recent works negotiate a clash between real situations and latent gestures on the image plane as extended spatial situations.
