Gorris, Geert – Living Awake*
Author: Nickel van Duijvenboden, Mathew Volgraffl Publisher: Roma Publications, Amsterdam Year: 2013 ISBN: 9789077459935 Roma Publication Hardcover, 170 pages, Dutch/English, 24 x 31 cm. Condition: NEW
The work of Belgian artist and photographer Geert Goiris straddles a liminal position between landscape and still life. Haunting and dreamlike, the sometimes alien images denote a fundamental tension between man and nature often bordering on the sublime. From seemingly composed scenes of various objects or portraits to architectural and natural landscapes, the images impart a sense of uncanny timing or discerning observation, achieving both qualities of suspended time and unspoken narrative. Included is Myths, Places and Protagonists, a collection of short texts by Goiris offering personal insight into how a number of the images came to be created or inspired.
