About the Item

"Béatrice Hug makes colours radiate in all directions and vibrate in a way thought to be restricted to painting, transparencies play like glazes to accentuate depth. Haziness and clarity work together, offsetting each other. (...) Although she sometimes takes her inspiration from the construction of painting and the technique of photography in order to guarantee realism, Béatrice Hug's work dispels any opposition between both practices through its strength and clarity. Instead, she intimately blends these two artistic languages which, by mutually questioning each other, are strengthened and renewed. In the end, we do not question whether we are in front of a photograph or a canvas. The only thing that counts is the certainty of facing reality for our immense emotional and intellectual satisfaction, that raw reality that we live with every day without seeing or understanding its potential beauty." Jean Pennec Béatrice Hug was born in Germany in 1961. She now lives and works in France. She exhibits regularly in France, Germany, England, Switzerland and Italy, but also in the United-States and Brazil.

  • High Mountains (Blue & Orange), Contemporary Digital, Abstract Wood Frame
    By Kalee Appleton (American)
    Located in Austin, TX
    Kalee Appleton's work blurs the line between drawing, sculpture and photography, while challenging the traditions of photography by exploring technology and materiality. This work investigates the complicated relationship between society and the nature by displaying visual platitudes of idealized depictions of flora. By controlling and restricting the physical frame to a gesture, a mark reminiscent of a photoshop post-production brush stroke, digitally manipulated imagery is manifested into a physical object that wavers from a flat 2D photograph to a 3D object. The digital nature of the altered photographs is repeated or obviously falsified through various digital techniques. This digital-ness is transferred to the physical realm through the display within irregularly shaped wooden frames that contradicts the materiality of what is typically associated with a solid wooden structure and creates a sense of cohesion between natural and virtual motifs. Kalee Appleton is a photography-based artist and Assistant Professor of photography at TCU in Fort Worth, Texas. Originally from Hobbs, NM, she attended Texas Tech University and received a BFA in Photography in 2005. Shortly after graduated she worked as a commercial corporate and aviation photographer before attending Texas Woman’s University, where she received an MFA in Photography in 2014. Kalee's work deals with the digital technologies and their effects on society and the landscape. She exhibits her artwork with Erin Cluley...
