Wilhelm Heiliger: Journey into synthesis
Wilhelm Heiliger’s real and yet fantastic works will be exhibited at the iSculpture Gallery in San Giminiano.
A photographic exhibition in which reality becomes abstraction and the portrayed subject loses its true meaning.
The relationship between shape and colour is the foundation of the history of art.
With artists such as Rothko and Pollock, or even earlier with the Impressionists, we witness the attempt to make colour the true protagonist of the expressive medium, assigning it a central role.
The colour palette is broken down and analysed in the smallest detail, with the aim of generating grace and balance.
In Wilhelm Heiliger’s work photographic detail becomes shape, whereas digital chromatic processing conveys new meanings and suggestions to the image every time.
A roof becomes a dividing line for the blue sky; a shell becomes a flash of light.
Reality becomes abstract and subjective.
