Dennis Gun
by Jürgen Schilling
Publisher's Description
Dennis Gun (*1956 in Istanbul) studied painting and art philosophy at the Akademie der bildenden Künste (Academy of Fine Arts) in Vienna, followed by the study of astrophysics. The artist works with staged and spontaneous photography alike. However, he specializes in orchestrated photographs that seem like open-ended narratives. Although there is a concept behind these works, they are not conceptual. They can be described as Baroque allegories of light and shadow, depth and space. Gun critically explores historical, art historical, scientific, and mythological themes, dealing far more critically with philosophical than with political aspects. This monograph features works by the artist dating from 2008 to 2010.
