Beauty at The Expense of Nature

Belgian photographer Frederik Vercruysse shows a series of photographs that came to life during an ‘artist in residency’ project in Villa Lena, Tuscany.

 

‘Tempo Polveroso’ or: ‘Pulverised Time’ is a series of sixteen unique still-life photographs in which a cloud of mysterious, powdery mist appears to be suspended. Gallery Graanmarkt 13 in Antwerp will open its doors to the public for this exhibition from Friday, April 24th to Saturday May 30th.

 

His photographs of marble quarries evoke a sense of beauty, although embedded with a melancholic sprit. Without the inclusion of any human figures, the larger-than-life scale of this form of landscape architecture remains a mystery. His layered approach and technique helps detach reality from its context, creating a poetic image.
