 A prominent member of the Düsseldorf School in Germany, photographer Thomas Ruff presents his first solo exhibition in a Mexican gallery at Galería OMR in Mexico City.

 

In our present time of instant photography and hyperrealism, Ruff is considered a master of capturing the imagination through his uncanny use of technology, distortion, and subtle yet impactful intervention. Concerned with the study of aesthetics and the appropriation of images, Ruff challenges our everyday perception of what we think we know and what we ought to consider about what we don’t know.

 

Born on February 10, 1958 in Zell am Harmersbach, Ruff has a long trajectory of working with different genres of imagery which includes; nudes, portraiture, architecture, astronomy, and the use of film frames, among others. A playful bridge between photography and painting, his work captures and pulls audiences in as they work to decipher that which is in front of them.

 

His upcoming exhibition at OMR takes on a retrospective approach that will surely allow the spectators to fully appreciate the extent of his life’s work. Visitors will have access to a variety of work from his series Sterne; nudes; Jpegs; M.A.R.S; Photograms; Negatives; and the lauded press++.

 

The exhibition will be up for viewing from September 21 to October 17 of 2018.

 Un miembro ilustre de la escuela Düsseldorf de Alemania, el fotógrafo Thomas Ruff presenta su primera exhibición individual en una galería mexicana con Galería OMR en la Ciudad de México.

 

En época de fotografía instantánea e hiperrealismo, Ruff es considerado maestro en capturar la imaginación a través de su uso peculiar de la tecnología, distorsión e intervención sutil pero impactante. Con un enfoque en el estudio de la estética y la apropiación de imágenes, Ruff reta nuestra percepción cotidiana de aquello que pensamos saber y aquello que debemos considerar no saber.

 

Nacido el 10 de febrero de 1958 en Zell am Harmersbach, Ruff ha mantenido una larga trayectoria al trabajar con diferentes géneros en su obra. Estos incluyen el nudismo; el retrato, la arquitectura, la astronomía, y el fotograma, entre otros. Creando vínculo entre la fotografía y pintura, su trabajo captura y atrae a su audiencia mientras buscan descifrar aquello que ven frente a ellos.

 

Su exhibición en OMR aborda una propuesta tipo “retrospectiva” cual seguro ofrecerá a sus espectadores apreciar el alcance de las obras que ha producido a través de los años. Visitantes tendrán acceso a obras de sus múltiples series incluyendo Sterne; nudes; Jpegs; M.A.R.S; Photograms; Negatives; y la alabada press++.

 

La exhibición estará abierta al público del 21 de septiembre al 17 de octubre del 2018.
