Sale price$ 600


Archival ink on museum-quality cotton rag paper | 2022

“Metamorphosis,” the new series of photographs by Jan Prengel, deals with the limits of matter — how it dissolves, and what different forms and changes of existence are possible. Prengel asks viewers to contemplate existential questions like: Is there a kind of materiality in the universe that cannot be perceived with our senses and the technical ways known to us? Is there a process of separation of body and soul after a living being dies? Where would this energy be after such a process? The series comprises photographed objects —  withered parts of plants that usually appear lifeless. But by changing their shape, they have gained a whole new aesthetic and shine in the warm light like blazing flames. Energy seems to detach from the matter and transmit itself into space.

“I try to create a composition where your eyes come to rest, a composition which 'feels' right.”

About the Artist

Jan Prengel

Time. Space. Existence.
With his minimalist photographs, Jan Prengel looks behind the common ideas of these concepts and wants to share his approaches and views on the world. Where language and explanations usually have their limits, the works are intended to inspire us to break open our material view on the world and to create new perspectives on reality. The motifs vary and range from plants to urban spaces and surreal landscapes. The minimalism is used for both visual aesthetics and a calming mental effect. A harmonious visual composition can be found in all works and creates the basis for focusing on his own inner visions.
His work has been exhibited in the US, in Switzerland and in Germany, where he lives and works.
