We are thrilled to feature the work of our new Ctrl+P: Photography Taken Offline artist Fabian Schubert. Schubert’s images are on view through September 1, 2017
Fabian Schubert (b. 1974 Krefeld, Germany) lives in Berlin and works as a photo and video artist. His work covers an array of techniques and styles ranging from portrait, landscape and still life photography to fictional and documentary videos; herewith developing individual image concepts for an artistic purpose as well as for editorial and commercial use. He studied Photography and History, Japanese history in Berlin.
The ongoing series Self-Portrait Landscape is collaboration between photographer Fabian Schubert and artist Hank Schmidt in der Beek. It is a conceptual and visual reflection about the picture-in-picture, a painting artist in the picture, a once painted landscape in the picture and a painted pattern of a shirt as a picture. With this series, Schubert and Schmidt in der Beek are seeking out the plein-air locations of Cézanne, C.D. Friedrich, Gauguin, Hockney, Hodler, Kandinsky, Marc, Monet, Münter and others.
Ctrl+P: Photography taken offline is an exciting venture at Catherine Edelman Gallery inspired by the hundreds of photographs we see on blogs and online galleries. Started in January 2011, CEG introduces Chicagoans to new artists we find while searching the web, exhibiting a small selection of one person’s work every two months, taking the pictures offline and putting them on the wall. It is our goal that Ctrl+P will provide further exposure for these photographers away from the glow of a computer monitor and without the temptation to click to the next link. We hope you will join us by unplugging from the internet and visiting CEG to see these photographs the way they were intended — in print.
