Ruud van Empel

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Dutch visual artist Ruud van Empel (1958) hardly needs any introduction. He is a true creator of new atmospheres. His famous images of a hallucinatory world in which often children take a pose, are beyond the creation of computerized photographs. Being one of the first protagonists of photo-art, Ruud van Empel combines the use of the medium of photography with computer technology in an almost unprecedented way. By referring to immemorial notions of virtue and innocence, his works are interesting from both an art-historical and cultural-historical angle. At the same time his incredible skills with contemporary techniques challenge an on-going dialogue with our present society. Ruud van Empel opens hitherto unknown possibilities and new directions in art. (via Flatland Gallery) Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
