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. In principle, Jorg Karg has been focusing on digital photographic collages for around twelve years now. He takes photographic material, rearrange it, and abstract it using photo-editing software. Before discovering this fascinating subject, Jorg Karg also worked obsessively on painting and drawing. Indeed, this was a good route, as the knowledge he gained there helps him in his work today. Jorg Karg did not try to gain any access to the art market until 2016. But after the decision was finally made, he was directly nominated for The BLOOOM Award 2016 and had the opportunity to present himself at the Cologne Art.Fair. After that he found awesome gallery support, which made it possible for him to exhibit excerpts of his work in Germany. In 2017, he was shortlisted for the Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize and, as a result, he exhibited in London. Later that year he was able to present his work in the Netherlands and Sweden. His work is unique in the field of collage art and he is more than happy about the curators feedback as well as about several press and magazine features.
