Note about 'Shiny Ruin': What will be left when everything tangible is gone? You.
During the process of development and production I don’t think about the meaning or importance of a work. One step follows the next until the expression convinces me. Later, when it comes to capture the work and find a title, I reflect the piece by taking all factors into account which affected me during the process. And this is also the time when I take notes about it. Ultimately, however, the image and title can only give a hint, because what each one sees, interprets or senses in interaction with the work, can never be grasped. Above you find the note i took about my work 'Shiyn Ruin'.
Jorg Karg GERMANY
Born 1982, raised and currently living in Germany with an unbridled obsession for pictures.
Jorg Karg has been focusing on digital collages for around fourteen years now. He takes photographic material, rearrange it, and abstract it, using photo-editing software. Before discovering this fascinating for photography he obsessively painted and drew, which is a 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 and Sweden. In 2018 the journey went on and his works were recognized by several awards and publications. Later the range of exhibitions has also expanded to France, Spain, Hong Kong, Japan, USA, Dubai and Australia.
„The intention behind my work 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. All that can be used to move the viewer and create an unexpected personal experience.”
