Graphic-Photographic seriesMirror … mirror on the wall, who has the most precious art in the hall?”

A series of graphic-photographic works (260 x 162 cm each) with specific images that explore the limits of abstraction and figuration in dramatic compositions of regular geometrical forms.
The content o f the works refer to Plato's Allegory of the Cave: is what we see and experience reality or just an imagination of reality?
That's why this series as only an umbrella title: a variation of a well known phrase out of a well known fairytale …

The works are edited in maximum 9 copies. All copies are printed on high-quality art print paper. The format of the works is 161 cm x 262 cm.
In private buildings they are only fixed on top to the wall. In public spaces there is also a fixation below.
It's possible to create works on request to fit in certain environments.
