Artist Blog

Every week an artist whose single image was published by Der Greif is given a platform in which to blog about contemporary photography.

New technique and experimentation

Nov 18, 2021 - Matej Jurcevic

Coming from a photography background working with materials such as paper was something I had to get myself familiar with. When I started the work on the series I get so lonely, life in magazines at first I was creating collages like you see in this blog post. I think I created somewhere around 30-40 pieces in a very short amount of time. As much as I was teaching myself how to bend and glue paper I used this time to understand what imagery I was interested in. Works started to look more and more like thorn portraits. That was a very important step for the further development of the project. The idea of the destroyed and disrupted icon.
