The way we see the world is more complex than one can initially imagine. Fusing photography and painting, Michael Weißköppel creates layered paintings that explore how time, space, and composition can alter how we view an image.
Combining humanistic, painterly gestures with the digitised click-and-drag/copy & paste mentality, Weißköppel highlights how the imagery we consume affects the way we experience reality.
Weißköppel utilizes Photoshop to erase parts of a painting digitally before he approaches the physical iteration on canvas. Creating voids in the composition allows the viewer to 'complete' the painting using their own memories and personal histories, creating dialogue about shared and individual experience.
