———-

Brandl zog 2014 nach Afrika. Bei seiner Ankunft an der Südküste Kenias fühlte er sich überwältigt von der schieren Grandezza der Elemente – Land, Ozean, Himmel. Der Wunsch zu malen kam auf, genauso wie die Möglichkeit die Form vom Gefühl zu trennen.

Nach einem Prozess des Experimentierens in dem er hunderte Fotos aufnahm, gelang es Brandl schließlich, seinen Wunsch aufs Fotopapier zu bannen, indem er alle drei Elemente gleichzeitig benutzte. Und wie ein Maler auf seine Leinwand Schichten von Farbe aufträgt, schichtet Brandl fotografische Elemente auf seinen (digitalen) Bildträger – und hält so jedes einzelne Element in Limbo.

In Limbo, Kenya, 2015

New Exhibition – with these works
Reception: September 11, 2015, Diani Beach Art Gallery, Diani Beach, Kenya

Brandl first came in contact with Kenya’s coast in 1997, in 2014 he moved more permanently to Africa. Upon his arrival in Diani Beach he felt overwhelmed by the sheer grandezza of the elements – land, sea, airs. The desire to paint arose just like the ability to abstract form from emotion.

After an experimental process, where he took hundreds of photographs, Brandl finally succeeded in capturing his desire on photographic paper by using photos of the three elements simultaneously. Just like a painter adds layers of colours to a canvas Brandl, too, layered photographic elements onto his (digital) photographic paper – thus keeping each element in limbo.

All works are for sale, edition: 3, prices available upon request
