Kuki Walsch - Painterly Photography
Photography is not only her passion but evocation as well.
Beside the figurative depiction of objects and the immediate snapshots of surroundings or landscapes shaped by light- and atmospheric conditions, photography for her means transforming objective reality into her imaginary dreamworld!
Her contemplation of nature and landscape is this of seeing living individuals, feeling their aura and essence, their basics. Light, weather & wind influence and affect her personal mood and the atmosphere of her surrounding, likewise in nature or city. Her images evolve from her mind before being transformed into photographs with the means of her camera.
Intuitively her perception is similiar to the one of the former impressionistic and/or expressionistic painters.
The selective use of intentional contingency during the composition of the viewframe and the use of blurring are stylistic devices for interpreting her subjective perception artistically.
Beside rythm and dynamics, light & shadows, motion & standstill she searches for the levels behind the seen reality and her personal interpretation. She fetches the unconscious feelings and moods and set them painterly in stage by the use of her camera tools or digital post processing.
It is up to her visitors to apply their personal viewpoints & dreams into her painterly photographs when looking at them.
