Press Release

Galerie Karsten Greve is delighted to present This Shimmering World, the new solo exhibition by the American photographer Thomas Brummett, who will unveil selections from his series RIVER and HALOS. Like the rest of his oeuvre, they are part of his vast project, Rethinking the Natural, which he defines himself as “the project of a lifetime”. Immanence and meditative observations shape the genesis of his approach, which celebrates nature in all its forms and tackles the themes of the infinite and the divine.

I’ve always worked with mining the territory in between drawing and photography. I have over the years repeatedly worked with the idea of the viewer changing their perception the closer they get to my images.

From a distance this work seems like one thing, but as you get closer the visual codes change

to black ink-like Sumi gestures and barren burned out trees. This duality of line and photographic subject is one of the mysterious things photography can achieve which (for me) no other art form can match. In some of these works the river reflections are acting as a type of “Looking Glass” into our possible future.”

From the Halos Series included in This Shimmering World

With the Halos series I have tried to document what the world would look like if we could just have the sensory tools to experience it. We are surrounded by starlight and rainbows every moment. We just can’t see them. These are simply records of refracted light. What would normally be a photographic mistake or defect of the lens. In my world it’s a miracle just waiting for all of us…

This fantastic Exhibition is closed to the public due to Covid.

Justyna Badach​ has done what few artists can with this new series of appropriated ISIS film stills which are all printed by hand and made with gun powder. Yes, these are very unique photographs that could possibly be a first in the history of photography because they have incorporated gun powder with a photographic emulsion to tell the story of war and indoctrination. These haunting dichromate photographs are literally made with the very substances that propel all wars. Run don’t walk to see this exhibition by an artist at the top of her game who combines a refugee’s personal narrative with a global feminine and most importantly; human perspective on men, war, religion and ultimately the brainwashing of young minds.
