Levi van Veluw's Landscape Self-Portraits
Levi van Veluw is a young Dutch artists who does miniature landscapes/self portraits on his face and head complete with trees, lawn, lamp lights, sheeps, snow and other stuff. His latest work is the 4-piece "Landscape" series presented here. Fascinating and Weird.
"Levi van Veluw´s photo series are self-portraits, drawn and photographed by himself: a one-man-process. His works constitute elemental transfers; modifying the face as object; combining it with other stylistic elements to create a third visual object of great visual impact. The work you see therefore is not a portrait, but an information-rich image of colour, form, texture, and content. The image contains the history of a short creative process, with the artist shifting between the entities of subject and object.
Besides the four landscapes, Levi van Veluw will also present a new video piece, landscape installation and works from two other series of photographs."
