Landscapes. The exhibition focuses on some of his most enigmatic images of water and architectural detail. He rigorously composes his monumentally scaled photographs to envelope viewers with dizzying scale, and color-effects.
German visual artist Andreas Gursky is renowned for his monumentally scaled photographs—grand urban and natural landscape vistas and large format architecture—created from a dispassionate, omniscient point of view. Highly detailed, Gursky's images are at once dead-pan observational and transcendent.
He rigorously composes his expansive views to envelope viewers with dizzying scale, detail, and color—effects he often heightens through digital manipulation of the image. Gursky has been instrumental in defining contemporary German art in the 1990s. The exhibition focuses on some of his most enigmatic images of landscape, water, and architectural detail.
