Few artists have shaped the scope of contemporary art and influenced a younger generation more than Wolfgang Tillmans. Since the early 1990s, his works have epitomized a new kind of subjectivity in photography, pairing intimacy and playfulness with social critique and the persistent questioning of existing values and hierarchies. Through his seamless integration of genres, subjects, techniques, and exhibition strategies, he has expanded conventional ways of approaching the medium and his practice continues to address the fundamental question of what it means to create pictures in an increasingly image-saturated world.
"Wald (Briol III)" is emblematic of Wolfgang Tillmans' more recent movements in photographic abstraction, as distinct from his early tendency for portraiture. This image focuses exclusively on the formal complexities inherent in nature. Depicting a closely knitted grove of trees, representation becomes secondary as the viewer's eye darts between contour and void.
