I firmly believe that a piece of art, once on display, does not belong to the artist but entirely to the viewer.
I have been photographing art in pursuit of my very own appreciation of it and understanding (or sometimes the lack of it) how it affects me and how I respond to it.
Photography allows for a personal approach to what already is individual – a meta-creation that does not necessarily follow or explain the original. This unbounded discourse is the quest for finding my very own dimension of those pieces of art that catch much more than my eye only.
Below are my interpretations (I use this word here in very much the same way as i would understand ‘translations’) of those few pieces of art that managed to disturb me enough.
