Two New Special Exhibits Go Up On I Photo Central Site

Two new Special Exhibits have just gone up on the I Photo Central website.

"Krzysztof Pruszkowski: Photosynthesis" is sponsored by Vintage Works, Ltd. and features the experimental photography work of this important Polish artist.

From 1975 on Pruszkowski worked on developing a new method of photography that he called "Photosynthese". He says that the approach results in "post-conceptual art." His technique of photosynthesis lays images of subjects of a similar type on top of one another to draw attention to the relativity of generalizations and typology. He refuses to use digital techniques in his photosyntheses, claiming that a manual composition of the pictures is more transparent and intellectually more meaningful.

"Lisa Holden: Victorial Dreamscapes and the New Technology" is also sponsored by Vintage Works, Ltd.

Lisa Holden is a British-born artist based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. She combines digital imagery with hand-painted layers to create 'parallel realities', referring to the exploration of displacement, adoption and the reinvention of identity as a necessity for survival. These are large scale color work, often with unique handpainting and varnishing.
