Completing the writing on the photo art scene in the Big Apple helps in getting a better perspective on what is happening locally. I like it, but sadly it is way under appreciated between fellow artists and the public at large.
Madalina is a special artist, combining interesting and thoughtful concepts with a talent to masterfully combine photo based elements to complete her personal vision. Below, in her own words, she talks about the making of one of her amazing visual images.
“The photographer Hans Lullig is an intellectual visionary. His photographs deliver a hard edged style of realism from everyday life. The photograph at the right, titled upside-down, expresses a corrival relationship between illumination and shadow, without the intensity of either. Lullig’s strong and unique signature and optical perspective avoid need for correlations or dynamic locality. The three vertical lines, in part provide a basic compositional outline, and cross with the horizontal beam, making the cruciform symbol against which the abject subject is placed. Ultimately it is the resulting natural simplicity that defines his special vision.”
