Ebbe Stub Wittrup: Presumed Reality
by Ebbe Wittrup
Publisher's Description
A box of slides from hiking trips in Norway and Switzerland in the late fifties that the artist once found forms the point of departure for the conceptual work by Ebbe Stub Wittrup (*1973 in Aarhus). The color photographs have faded over time, and the patina points towards a distant past. Yet the artist uses these documents without a sense of nostalgia. He digitally blocks out details or lends them greater sharpness. He plays with colors, forms, light, and shadow regardless of what is depicted. In this way, images of an ascent to a summit or people taking a break are transformed into abstract paintings: the outlines of people in the foreground dissolve, and the alpine world in the background becomes razor sharp. One can only guess what is real—Presumed Realities.
