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.

I’ve recently been working on a series I’m calling ‘Plagiarism’ as I am reappropriating images from monographs of some of my favourite painters.


I sift through the pages,  taking what attracts me and leaving what doesn’t. I then cut out shapes that are influenced by the work, allowing my intuition lead. Finally, I restructure the pieces into my own compositions, resulting in a familiar but distinctly new narrative.          @jessybooncowler
