Jorg Karg

Visual artist focused on digital photo collage.
Lives and works in Germany.

 

Statement

„The intention behind my digital collages is that the beholder feels addressed immediately, without any further explanation. Therefore I use present-day visual language and techniques to combine it with long established, fundamental ideas of painting and drawing.
Our subjective perception is shaped by so many instant influences these days. Modern media affects us immensely, but so does almost forgotten ideas about shapes, colors and expressions of past days. Everything builds on one another and is subconsciously present all the time. All that has to be taken into account to move the viewer and create an unexpected personal experience. If you like, an expansion of the field of collage.
My own person is irrelevant in that context, what is underlined by the use of a pseudonym.“
