Jacob Gils 2013, NY #1
Jacob Gils 2013, Body #3
MAY 2ND - PROLONGED TO AUGUST 31ST
He has been called a photographical impressionist. His images are textural and intense, his choice of motifs simple and subdued.
From May 2nd till August 10th In The Gallery will present new images by Danish photographer Jacob Gils from his two series, Limit to Your Love and Movement.
In the Limit to Your Love-series the works are pieced together by one or more polaroids. The motif is naked women, but it is the shapes and contours of the female body resembling curved landscapes you notice, more than nakedness.
In the Movement Series the motif is trees, buildings, cars and bridges photographed with a special multi-exposure technique. At close range the works seem shaky or blurry. Seen from a distance they seem almost alive and lead the viewer to new places.
