Wolfgang Tillmans - Abstract Pictures
This is a paperback edition of out of print book presenting the trendsetting abstract photographs by Turner Prize recipient Wolfgang Tillmans. Apart from his seminal portraits, party images, and still lifes that gained him recognition in the nineties, Wolfgang Tillmans long ago began dealing with more abstract motifs. In the past decade he has consistently developed his approach to create totally non-representational works that examine themes such as the process of exposure and image supports. From the delicate veils of colour in 'Blushes' and 'Freischwimmer' or the sculptural 'paper drops' made of rolled-up photographic paper, to the colourfully compelling works of the 'Lighter' series, the photograph itself - essentially divorced from its reproductive function - becomes the objet d'art, as the book here, designed by the artist himself, impressively demonstrates. Published by Hatje Cantz (Berlin).
