ARCTURUS Gallery presents Alfons ALT and his resino-pigmentypes photographs

Alfons ALT, of German origin, produces unique images. He patiently transforms photographs taken with a camera, working them with a brush to fix the pigments according to the resin-pigment type process invented in the middle of the 19th century, updated by him. He uses this old photographic technique to produce images whose modernity cannot be denied nor confused with old photographs.

” Alfons Alt pushes the language of the image that separates painting from photography
and photography from painting without this limit being ever crossed or exceeded. ”
(Sally Bonn, from Bestiaire, éd. Actes Sud)

From November 7th to December 1st, 2018
