ARTCO Gallery is presenting photography by Andreas Botzian in his first solo exhibition in Aachen. In addition to extraordinary picture compositions, his work is characterized by a high level of craftsmanship.
He himself says about the works shown:
“The situations experienced every day can be described as multi-layered. The spectrum ranges from real to unreal to hyper irreal. This is certainly always a question of individual perception but can be transported to a neutrally perceptible level by exaggerating it.
For this neutral level, I use toy figures in my pictures - as neutral avatars - in unreal or surreal surroundings, which encourage occupation with the respective situation. The implementation of the respective picture idea is created in my studio in an elaborate staging as a still life."
