Ruud van Empel to be given solo exhibition at Museum Belvédère

 

From 29 February – 26 May 2019, Ruud van Empel’s work will be the subject of an exhibition at Museum Belvédère in the Netherlands. The exhibition, Making Nature will be curated by Han Steenbruggen.

Ruud van Empel’s distinctive style has evolved through an ongoing exploration of the tension between straight photography and digital technology. His images are digitally constructed from a synthesis of hundreds of diverse fragments taken from his own photographs. He digitally dissects and reconstructs images to create his works, as eyes, noses and lips are collaged together to create brand new faces. Van Empel skilfully blends the techniques of collage, painting and photography, forcing the viewer to question their own conceptions of the constructed, and the ‘real’.
