Ingar Krauss – ‘Nature Morte’

Ingar Krauss’s series ‘Nature Morte’ is an ongoing project started in 2010 of still life ‘portraits’ of vegetables, fruits, grains, flowers and animals.

“I am interested in the hidden relationship between the inner life of human beings and the world of plants and animals and I want to transmute those commonplace subjects by a process of replacing inattention with contemplation.”

Krauss prints in black and white and subsequently paints every photo with a transparent oil paint by attributing to the images a nostalgic vein in the romantic tradition (the paint, very diluted, does not cover the image but colors it subtly).
