Benedikte Klüver – MA/MFA

The idea of painting with photography fascinates and inspires me greatly. I use my hands the same way for both methods; but instead of paint I use light to sculpt the photograph from the negative. A scene is captured in a split second — but it is in the darkroom, I am able to expand on the reality I want to reveal; it is here the familiar becomes alien and reveals new ways for me to see of seeing the reality. In my paintings I enjoy observing the colours communicate across the canvas; a map of temperaments starts to surface as the paint glides, hugs, pinches and teases the composition to life.
